The next stop in my aim to visit as many European countries as possible took me to Krakow, Poland. It was a very chilly visit with temperatures dropping to -8ºC at times.
Sunsets and sunrises will always be mesmerising. This is particularly true when visiting different countries. For this week's 52 Weeks Photo Challenge I have scoured some of my more successful and interesting sunrise photographs.
I love the use of reflection in photography and it also gave me a chance to look back through my photos from the last few years and reflect on how lucky I have been to visit some amazing places.
This is my offering for the very belated Week 3 of the 52 Week Photography Challenge. - Self Portrait. I'm not a fan of 'Selfies' unless I'm pulling some kind of ridiculous face or incorporating some comical scenery or landmark into the photo.
This would be my second visit to the Netherlands having visited earlier in the year. The weather was far cooler, the nerves weren't quite so jittery and there was a similar abundance of food!
It seems as though - much like Christmas, the last few months had been building up to one big day. (Amongst my circle of friends at least!) On Saturday 3rd of December one of my closest and longest enduring friend's wedding day took place at the Kings Centre and Burford Bridge in Dorking, Surrey.
It was an easy one hour trek into the mountains from the nearby village of Hveragerði to a very active area filled with steam outlets, bubbling mud pools and steaming rivers. The area was absolutely breathtaking and the views were spectacular.
