New Year's Day is a time for reflection on the past year and for looking forward to the coming one. Obviously I can't post photographs of the coming year but I can do a set reflecting on 2013 so here it is.

A little word play here, all the images contain reflections, albeit August's and November's are tenuous ones - the sunlight reflecting on the bee's wing and flash reflecting on Rowan berries. There are 13 images which seems appropriate, a titled opener plus one taken in each month of 2013. Bear with me because EPZ seems to load variants in a very random order so it will take time for me to sort this.

I hope your reflections on 2013 are predominantly happy ones. Thank you for looking and I hope you enjoy at least some of mine.

This is a very clever year end review, and exciting an unusual idea!

My personal favorites are 5, 6, 8 and 13!

KUDOS!

What an eclectic set Lynne, such diversity in these, I rather like v1 and v12. No prizes for guessing which one of these will appeal to Mikbee the most!Wink

I had already decided that v9 and v12 were my favourites because the subtlety of the subjects before I read your description. Clever me! Wink And like Glostopcat, v8 immediately made me think of Mikbee too.

A great set making a succinct reminder of the year just past. Thank you.

I'm quite sad to see the end of 2013 as it's been a bit of a turning point for me. It's a nice idea to look back over the year, and I've been doing the same today. Great set of images.

What a wonderful and eclectic group of images, Lynne, representing a modest selection of your captures over the last year.
As I get older I too spend more time reflecting on the past and pondering all the things I should have done, asked about, etc.
But this idea of reflecting through your images as a novel way of so doing.
A very happy New Year to you too and with many more fine captures I hope in mind.

The fish were in the marina in Moraira just up the coast from Calpe. A popular activity there is feeding the fish so they are very willing models but when feeding they are so quick that shutter speed priority is the only option. The ones in the picture are Harbour Mullet but we have images of lots more including the European Barracuda.

Well,I had a bad start to 2013 Lynne due to health problems and was missing on site for a couple of months,so I hope this year will be better !!
I see March here was a good month for rust,while July was a bad month for floods.
November was my birthday and a bright cheery one there.
January is a Lily(I think !!)and as I was in hospital then I thought they might be throwing these on top of my wooden box !!
All in all though it was quite a happy year on reflection for me,
so lets see what 2014 brings !!
