A post from the last day of 2013 — another year slips past too quickly.
Despite it being one of the most difficult I can remember in many ways, I was still fortunate to be able to visit a few places, both near and not-so-near, and to be able to photograph some beautiful landscapes and marvellous creatures.
May you have a rewarding, successful and safe 2014.
