2012 sucked a little bit, so I'm not doing one of those "year in review" type posts. I'm just waving that sucker goodbye and moving forward.
One of the things I particularly wanted to achieve over the past year though, was to be more consistent about getting out and about with my camera, and to improve on my photography, especially my landscapes. I think I nailed that one.

If you look closely, you'll see that four of these photos are of the same scene. It's Mount Disappointment in the Kinglake National Park, viewed from just up the road from our house. Different months, different weather and different times of day make an enormous difference to the colours.
I'm very lucky that I don't have to go far to find landscape subjects - all of these were shot around my neighbourhood, either on a walk or a bike ride.
I've found so much inspiration and encouragement on Instagram; there are some truly talented photographers over there. I've also loved doing Fat Mum Slim's Photo-a-day challenges.
I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does in 2013. :)
