This past year was one of many ups and downs. We learned to ‘pivot’ and ‘pirouette’ as the winds of change and chance tossed us one challenge after another. This week, Tina invites us to select favorite photos we’ve taken in 2021. Whether these are my best or not, they represent the scope of my photography this last year, and the hope I have for this coming year.
Sunset on the edge of a continent. Visual moments like this inspire me to believe in the future.
“A float, a drift, a flight, a wing
A hank, a quail, the promise of spring
And the river bank talks of the waters of March
It’s the promise of life, it’s the joy in your heart.” A.C. Jobim
Nothing can harm me at all
My worries seem so very small
With my waterfall” J. Hendrix
“Don’t ever change your ways
Fall with me for a million days
Oh, my waterfall”
“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen.”
― Ernest Hemingway
The Golden Hour
“Every sunset brings the promise of a new dawn.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
As we voyage into a new year, please continue to be kind and stay safe.🐾

Marvelous images Lindy – that waterfall is incredible!! Loved your skies a well. Hope your little friend is feeling better today
Thanks for sharing these beautiful images from your year. The waterfalls are stunning!
Loved seeing your photo moments of 2021. The beauty of skies inspire me also. Hopes for a path to more “normalcy” this coming year. Stay safe, Lindy. ❤
Gods fingers…. love these occasional light shows. Far better than later light shows 😄
Whenever you see a sunshine shot from me, know I’m sending it out to you!
They all will be received with pleasure and thanks 😃
Remarkable captures, Lindy! Love the sky image especially.
Thank you, Amy. This was another fun challenge!
Lindy – wow – that bird with beak open is a great capture – and really like how you led us into it “promise of life, it’s the joy in your heart.”
Thank you! It was a fun post to put together.
