It's been a beautiful day, today, with clear air and a strong, raking light. A good day to be out, after so many dismally wet days, and a good day to start a new year. Here are the traditional photos from the compulsory New Year's Day walk:
We were up on St. Catherine's Hill and Twyford Down, and somehow I seemed to be channelling Eric Ravilious today. That second one, especially, is one of the most pleasing images I've made for a long time. With any luck, a sign that the way is up from here on.
Happy New Year!.
