So, as I write we are already in 2018 ... To me, the days have flown at an ever increasing rate. Each day seems shorter and each year passes just too quickly. I say this with the benefit of quite a few of them behind me, and certainly, lets say .. more behind me than could be ahead of me. So deduce from there. !!!
One thing though is certain. As I grow older, I appreciate that which is around me more. When I was young, a sunset was just another sunset and the dawn skies and their colours were all too familiar to me as my work often involved getting up at 4.30am some days and I wasn't aware of much until my third cup of tea !! Yes, of course I appreciated these times and hopefully didn't take the passing days and years for granted ( too much ), but they just seem more colourful now and special...Nature in general - the same. My aim this year in photography ( from a personal project point of view ), is to better record these changes in the seasons and attempt to get out of bed in time for a few more Sunrise' shots rather than Sunsets' !! I also wish all readers and fellow photographers well for this 2018 and beyond... happy snapping !!!
