The Last Shots of 2013

Time out with some of my family in recent days to view a village in Cornwall famed for its Christmas light did not it seem reap too many images of decent quality. Hey Ho. Even so I did capture a small handful I thought were suitable to share.

The Village of Mouse Hole (seemingly pronounced Mousall) annually displays Christmas lights in and around its harbour walls. On this occasion the tide was thankfully out and so I managed to descend to the small crescent-shaped beach where numerous row boats had been grounded.

Unfortunate that it is, dogs are frequently not allowed into shops (unless of course they give guidance). As such I often found myself standing out in the not-too-cold post-Christmas drizzle with Rolo, one small black and tan Border Terrier who has selective hearing, attention deficit disorder and a good hand in being cute. 

Standing outside one particular shop I decided in pass the time with a touch of abstract photography.

Near to my home, there is a picturesque chapel with a large cemetery. With the early morning sun painting the chapel and the headstones with light, I took my camera over to see what I could get.

And so finishes 2013. I look forward to 2014, I think it will be a good year (undoubtedly with a few ups and downs). Everyone faces changes and I'm no exception. I plan to travel more as of 2014 and spend more time and energy pursuing my own passions and interests (not to mention quality time with my family). 

Happy New Year to all and may your dreams come true.
