The year, the decade – but not us!

A brief post to wish you all a very happy winter festive season, if you choose to celebrate.

The season? I dig it!

I was put in mind of the fading of the year a week or so back when we were on the beach mid-afternoon on a relatively sunny day, only to find the light went pretty quickly as the afternoon marched on and some clouds marched in. Shirtsleeves to toque and jacket in little more than an hour.

I’ll save looking ahead to the next decade for when it gets under way, save to say here’s hoping it isn’t as rabidly populist, negative and xenophobic as the end of this decade. As a couple of comments left here recently suggested, it’s worth holding on to the notion the pendulum will swing back, bad political times do pass, and common sense and decency, kindness and caring might even become the norm.

With that, all the best to all who’ve chosen to stop by, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. I’m with Wayne, pc, the light of hope can carry us through anything, if we open up our curtains and let it in. Really enjoyed your photos of the sunset, my friend, and wishing you lots of light and beauty in the new year ahead.

  2. Those short days do make photographing sunrise and sunset so much easier. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season as well. Some long walks, quiet days and perhaps some time away from that political new that has made this year a strain.

  3. Wonderful light in your sunsets, Adam. I’m with friends in above comments…we must have hope that better days are ahead and these nightmares will end. On that happy note, I wish you and your loved ones a happy holiday season. 🤗

    1. Thank you! Yes, the football was terrible, although I’d have taken a draw before the game against Arsenal – or any team, haha. Where was the Mourinho magic for Spurs? Thought he’d know a thing or two about Chelsea!
      I hope you have a great week, although no snow must be a bit disappointing?
