To end the year we have been challenged with sharing our favourite photo/s of 2017 – a meaningful photo or gallery of photos.
Thats a challenge in itself isn’t it? Generally I only ever add one photo when taking part in the WordPress challenges but this time, with the option to add more, I thought I would. How about one photo for every season?
So this is a meaningful reflection of our year…
This first one may just be my favourite shot of the year.
Winter. It was a lucky visit to one of our local beaches when we found large groups of seals just lounging about – officially known as a ‘haul out’. This beach is now home to a very large colony of grey seals who use it as a safe place to give birth to their pups in November/December – the beach is roped off to avoid disturbing them. At the end of January all the pups have disappeared from the beach and humans are allowed back onto the sand! I crept as close as I dare and held my breath to take it.

My second photo was taken in April while on holiday in Devon. Having walked for several hours along the South West Coastal Path we found ‘our’ bench. What a lucky find. In warm spring sunshine we enjoyed our picnic lunch and felt so pleased with ourselves. Not a sound except for bird song. Ahead of us is Budleigh Salterton, a place that I’m sure we will visit again.

Summer. So many photos to choose from. This one was taken on a rare day for me & Tim. Too warm for walking we took our beach shelter and spent a few sleepy hours with our feet up, reading or just staring out at the unusually wave free North Sea.

Finally Autumn (or Fall – depending on where you live in the world). A time that I never really used to appreciate. Time it right and some of the best natural colours can be captured. This photo was taken in the woods behind Felbrigg Hall, North Norfolk. Even though some of the leaves in this shot hadn’t turned, oh my goodness it was beautiful.
