I have so far added 756 photos to my Flickr account in 2017. Some good, many so-so, a few that suck and a handful which I really like. There’s a few days left for more to go up, but I think I have a settled selection of the best of the year. It’s been a good year. We’ve been to Scotland, Spain and India. And within the UK we’ve been to stately homes and castles across the south/south east, punting in Cambridge and Ladies Day at Royal Ascot. It’s been fun. My personal favourite of the year was taken right at the beginning of 2016, close to home – the lighthouse at Portland. I like the symmetry of the lighthouse rising into the sky behind the scattered rocks in the foreground. Mostly, I just like the shade of blue in the sky. Here’s hoping 2018 will be just as good or better. Click here to see the full set of Best of 2017 Flickr.
