2020, a new year, a new list of titles for Maria’s Antonia’s #2020picoftheweek challenge.

A New Year’s Eve scene on South Quay: 31 Dec 2019

For me it started on the last day of the old year. The day dawned warm, with hardly a breeze, and not a raincloud in sight. Right, grab the camera and get out. My thought was only to walk around town, since Around Town is one of the titles for this year.

Out of the door, turn right, 35 yds to the quay. And the above scene greeted my eyes.

That was it, the perfect shot for Up In The Sky.

I took several more shots, including this one…

Breaking the illusion: 31 Dec 2019

I could have put the camera away, turned around and gone home. But it was such a balmy day that I kept on walking. And scooped several more “interesting” shots.

If you fancy a hand at this weekly (yet annual) challenge, details and the list of titles can be found on Maria’s Antonia’s #2020picoftheweek challenge.

    Is it a Christmas decoration or are they relocating a tree?

  3. Wow!!! What a shot. I love it. It’s like it all came down to a contest as to who had the tallest tree. Looks like Bob won this year!
