Ready?


What will the new tide bring in, I wonder.



We stand as a whole new unblemished year stretches out before us.



What marks will we make on it?



What shapes shall we carve?




What treasures will we find -



and what challenges will we face?



Let's get ready to fly...



...into the rainbow of 2012.

  23. Lovely post, beautiful photographs - who wouldn't be inspired by waking up to that view. I love the rainbow one, reminds me of the Calf of Mann, another of my very favourite places. I also love the one with the rocks, showing the formation. The red colour and the little man just bring them to life.
