As we start out a new year I wanted to say a quick cheerio with some of my favourite pictures from last year. I had planned to have a picture from each month but it turns out I didn’t take any pictures in March or April (it may be more likely that I’ve lost them!). Anyway, here are 10 of my favourite pictures from each month last year.
January: This was taken on a bright sunny January day and is of Edinburgh’s Western Harbour
February: My friend and I took a short trip to Berlin in February where I took a picture of these great pink over ground pipes. What an amazing city, I can’t wait to go back but probably will wait for a warmer time of year…February is COLD!
May: My friends got married and had the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever been to. The bride and her family made almost all of the decorations, the groom provided the music and his mum made this gorgeous cake. It was a day to remember on the banks of Loch Fyne.
June: Campbell & I visited Amsterdam in June witha group of friends. It’s a stunning city and I took this picture while on a boat tour. I love the colours and reflections.
July: This month was all about Olympic preparations. This was the day that the Red Arrows flew over Edinburgh.
August: Campbell and I went to visit my mother in Crete this month, here is a picture of him enjoying a beautiful sunset one evening.
September: I cycled 50 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh and was very proud to get this medal. It was a great experience and one I hope to repeat this year.
October: October (and November for that matter) saw the leaves turning and it was more beautiful than I remember seeing in a long time, the last few years the leaves have been frozen off or blown off before they can turn. Here is Edinburgh Castle at the start of this turn.
November: Here is Campbell enjoying the cosiness of his winter coat on the top of Cairngorm Mountain. We took the funicular railway up and enjoyed the views before having a fantastic hot chocolate.
December: This was the festive season and to celebrate here is a picture of some of our tree decorations.
2012 was quite a year with it’s fair share of ups and downs. I’m looking forward immensely to 2013 and what exciting things it may hold.
