Yay, happy new year to all of you!

Finally this terrible year of 2016 is over. And to close it out, I spent a couple of days quietly with my family in the UK. Here are some pictures of a nice, cold winter walk at Wimpole, such a great photo opportunity. I’ve been seeing tons of “foggy” pictures on Instagram lately and I think I need to practice a bit more to get the hang of how to post process them. Tips welcome.

And yes, I know a date change won’t magically change the world, but it does have a psychological impact and I guess I need it this time.. and I know I am not the only one. It’s been feeling way too heavy for way too long and I am determined to make the best out of this little spark of strength and hope to turn things around. I am not exactly sure what (and where) 2017 will bring me, especially knowing that nothing ever goes as planned, but I’m trying to get over the scary part and leave space for excitement and adventures. Including many many photo opportunities ;)

I hope all of you also feel this little light that will give you the strength to challenge the impossible and dare the unknown.

And in case you are still looking for some photographic inspiration for the new year, here is a really cool photo calendar from PetaPixel. It has a keyword for each day to take and share a picture with the hashtag #PhotoBlog365. Now I already missed some and will be without internet access on my next trip, but I might try to catch up in Feb.

Best,
Julie
