BELATED 'HAPPY NEW YEAR'

WE WOULD LIKE TO START BY WISHING 
EVERYONE A BELATED 'HAPPY NEW YEAR'.

NOT A LOT ABOUT AT THE MOMENT AND TO BE 
QUITE HONEST OUR HEART IS NOT REALLY IN IT.

WE ARE OFF TO BRAZIL IN 6 WEEKS TIME AND 
THINK THAT MAY DO US SOME GOOD AND 
HOPEFULLY IGNITE OUR ENTHUSIASM AGAIN.

  1. Seems to me that a trip to Brazil might just the tonic you need. If you were here right now, John, I could take you to see Snowy Owls, and while that hardly rivals the incredible diversity you will see in Brazil, it might be a decent pick-me-up.

  3. A delightful set of images!

    So sorry to hear that you're somewhat 'out of sorts' at the moment, John - I can fully understand after your difficult year last year. I hope that your trip to Brazil fills you with enthusiasm, and get you firing on all cylinders again. Take good care. With my very best wishes to you both - - - Richard

    Take care! I feel so sorry for you. It was a very sad and difficult year.
    The photos are beautiful, especially the Black-bellied Dipper!

  11. Hello!:) Excellent shots as always. It's not surprising that you have been feeling less than enthusiastic about nature photography, but have a good trip to Brasil, and come back with renewed enthusiasm, and lots of photos to share.:)

  16. Hi John and Sue belated Happy New Year Greetings to you also, good to catch up a couple of week's ago down at Feock, been down a couple of times since but those Hawfinch are really camera shy. Probably bump into you again before the SA trip, but if not have a super time.
    CU soon.
