A Look Back

On this last day of this tumultous year, I thought I’d look back through my photos and pick a dozen shots, one for each month. Nature has provided me with much solace, as it does every year, but this year its solid continuity has been especially calming.

I hope the year ahead provides you similar comfort and that no matter where the road takes you, you find a quiet peace at the end of each day. Wishing you health and much happiness in 2021. Thank you for being you. ❤

  5. Some I remember and some are new to me but all are a delight to see. 🙂

  6. And now you’ve got to start building an inventory to choose from at the end of this just-begun year, by which time we hope to be back to a semblance of normality.
    Three days ago I had an encounter with cedar waxwings similar to yours.

    I enjoyed your review very much, Eliza. I imagine you appreciating all these wonderful nature moments. The Cedar Waxwing and berries is magical, Mirrored is stunning as is your Fiddlehead- all terrific and those caught my eye in particular.
