This is obviously going to be a photo heavy post and if you have a slow connection it could take a while - a long while - to load.
This year was different from previous years. Instead of working on tons of projects, I spent my time what I called "gallivanting" and that means instead of a list of things I accomplished this year, what I have is a list of favorite photos. And oh yeah, I love nature. These photos are pretty much all nature, all the time.
I will say one thing for our winter - it makes for some fantastic sunrises and sunsets.
Getting any light this time of year is such a rare and precious thing.
My longest bout of gallivanting and therefore my largest collection of photos I had to whittle down.
My second largest bout of gallivanting.
What a wonderful treat this winter was! Blue skies and dry weather for almost a whole month which meant lots of pretty frost and fog.
And a gorgeous Christmas morning sunrise.
This is the year I learned a lot about tricking my camera into doing what I wanted and then got a new camera that can do so much more (hello zoom!). So here's to 2012 and the lovely sights I see through my lens.
