New Year’s Photography


I have started 2012 the way I mean to go on this year – by getting out and taking photographs.

The weather here in Galloway has been pretty grim over Christmas, but today – New Year’s Day, the sun broke through the clouds and I managed to get out with the camera for the first time in 2012.

Okay, I’m not pretending it’s the most startling landscape photograph I’ve ever taken, but at least I have produced some pictures today and it’s got the year started.

Landscape photography in 2012

My first photography of 2012 - not wildly exciting, but at least it's made a good start for 2012. Two minutes after the picture was taken, the heavens opened and I got soaked. The picture shows the River Dee at Threave Bridge, Kirkdcudbrightshire. Photography by Philip Dunn

I’ve not been idle over the holiday – I’ve taken lots of photographs of our new granddaughter over Christmas – what a joy that was to record her first Christmas.

So come on – make a New Year resolution to get out with your camera as often as possible in 2012.
