Today’s Pictures: 31 Dec 20, New Year’s Eve

A quiet reflection on a fishing pond in the Forest of Dean

Perhaps I should wax lyrical about the ending of a year so full of personal tragedy for so many. But today is traditionally a celebratory occasion and, though I question the value of many traditions, this is one to which I subscribe. Tomorrow, the start of a new year, with all that promises, will be time enough to discuss, describe, and perhaps complain. We’ll have to wait and see.

And another, on the same pond.
It’s uncommon for the North Sea to be calm, but this was taken in the winter of 2015 at South Shields.

The more people who share this post on social media, the more it will let those stuck indoors due to Covid 19, enjoy it. And it’ll reach more people to show them our wonderful world. Maybe, between us, we’ll restore some love and respect for nature and slow down the damage to our environment. Thank you.

And for the lovers of the giants, I give you this pair of ancient sentinels on guard atop the ledge of a quarry unused for over a century.

    1. Thank you, Joni. We had a quiet night in, with lots of messages between friends and relatives, and saw in 2021 with joy together. Now the new year is here, let’s hope it brings all of us the good things we all desire.

      1. Yes, I surely hope so my friend. I am glad you and Valerie had a lovely New Year Eve. Scott and I have some dear friends in their 80’s who are still very spry and we will visit safely with them today. It will be nice to get out of the house and spend time with great friends. Happy New Year to you and Valerie and may all your dreams come true. Love ❤️ Joni
