Back at the end of October we spent a week in Mallorca. Life has been busy and it has taken a while to sort out my photographs. Recently I picked my favourites to make a calendar for 2015 so thirteen photographs (12 months plus the cover) from some of my favourite places on the island

The weather has turned colder now so I'm enjoying remembering the Mediterranean sun and warm temperatures.

Holly berries,

blue skies,

low slanting sunlight

and soft shadows.

Bright sunny days

and grey murky days

with muddy puddles.

Cold clear skies,

warm orange sunsets

and finally the holidays.

December has been a full and busy month as we deal with health problems of ageing parents and wonder how long they can remain independent, whilst at the same time watch our youngest son graduate and get a job at the other end of the country. There will be many changes in the next year.

As always, going for a walk with my camera is a good way to clear my mind and gain perspective.

Happy Christmas.
