[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It is the last day of 2007 so this is my tribute to the year. For most of us in the UK it has been a bit of a soggy year but looking back it has still been a good year. These are not my best shots but these shot all remind me of what I was doing throughout the year.

Jan: A cool crisp and clear month. I spent some time using my new Sigma 70-300 mm lens photographing deer at Richmond. My first DSLR was still quite new to me then.

Feb: An albino squirrel gazing out at the solid rain.

March: saw my birthday and a trip to Winsor and a new tripod as a birthday present.

April: Bright and sunny. I spent a lovely day relaxing by a lake watching this fellow fish.

May: it started to rain in the UK...so I went to sicily with the stunning sunsets

June: it rained and rained but I spent time under the trees and found a red deer hind and her calf

July: Still raining but under the trees a Bank Vole peeks above a stick

August: The water voles collect food for the winter

September: A few warm days sees me head to Dorset to try out me new Sigma 10-20mm lens (you will have to visit my Trek Lens site if you want to see what I have been doing with that lens)

October: Out come the funghi and my macro lens

November: the winter colours attract me back to Richmond

December: Frosts and festive Robins.

I hope 2008 brings many opportunities to you all

Hi Karan,

What a good idea to create a collage to document your great pics from throughout the year, very nicely put together, I like the way the colours reflect the seasons too which is quite a hard thing after the Weather we have had this year.

Happy 2008
