Finishing the year with a photo that began it, taken during our New Year break at Aberffraw on the North Wales island of Anglesey. It’s a place you can always rely on for some stunning light effects, even in winter. Last January did not disappoint, though we had some gales too. Here are some of the more peaceful on-the-beach moments.
Here’s wishing you glowing horizons, whatever your outlook.
This week Tina gives us the opportunity to post any 2022 photos of our choice, though not ones previously posted for this challenge. Please take a look at her lovely gallery of photos.

What marvellously wintry scenes.
And all good wishes for the Christmas season, of course!
Many thanks for those good wishes, Margaret. Heartily reciprocated.
That could be us on Christmas Day if the rain holds off. Nice winter scenes Tish. Wishing you all the best.
Cheers, Jude. All festive best wishes to you and yours.
I like this wintry beach scene not least because it is contrary to all our expectations – and look forward to many more of your photos in 2023 Tish
Many thanks, Laura. All the very best to you.
Pretty but sure looks cold.
It WAS cold, Beverly.
Beautiful scene Tish, would make a lovely Christmas card. Don’t know about you but we’re in for a VERY frosty holiday this year. Quite unusual here in the southern US but feels very festive! Wishing you a wonderful holiday season and all the best in the new year.
Beautiful images Tish!
Thank you, Anne.
A very Merry Ch ristmas to you Tish!
And all the festive best to you too, GC.
I love beaches at this time of year and this looks a perfect one for a winter walk – beautiful light!
Nothing like a nice sandy beach for a good winter’s striding out.
Thank you for a wonderful year of photos! Have a great Christmas, and a happy and healthy New year! Cora and Brian ashford
Gosh, Cora. Lovely to hear from you. I’m sorry we lost touch. Must remedy that 🙂
Peaceful tranquility is what comes to mind for me.
And that sounds like a good wish for all of us, Donna. Happy festive season to you.
Beautiful, but I get cold just looking at it! Brr. It’s warming up here right now. It should be near 60 by the end of the week. Weird weird weather!
Sorry to give you the shivers on top of ones you already have, but here’s wishing you and Garry a very happy New Year – whatever the weather. Knowing your liking for history did you see my post on a 1710 farmhouse inventory?
No, I didn’t. But I get an insane amount of email every day — hundreds. Unsubscribing doesn’t work. Even calling is spam doesn’t seem to help. I swear all that happens in that we get even more of the stuff we didn’t want in the first place. So I do miss things because when the number of emails climbs over 400 I begin to panic and just start to do mass deletes.
Thanks for sending a link!
I wish someone would come up with a solution to stopping the insane amount of email. It used to be that an email was a communication. NOW, you get a message telling you there will be a “real” message, a second warning of an upcoming message, the message and at least one or two follow-ups reminding you you’ve been messaged. You used to get notified of sales. Now, they tell you there’s a sale. They remind you twice daily there’s a sale coming — and then you start to get messages on the hour.
Death to BOTS!
Heavens, you are being inundated. An inevitably exponential flood to get our attention.
I once donated $3 to Obama’s campaign. It put me on “the list.” Apparently nothing will remove me.
That’s rather worrying. The fundraisers sold the list/got hacked. There are days when the internet seems more of a bane than Pandora’s box.
Short of changing my email address — which really doesn’t solve any problems because they find you anyway — yes, it IS bane. It’s overwhelming and I don’t think it accomplishes anything. I don’t think if I didn’t want to donate (vote for, buy, etc) the first time I got the notification, sending me half a dozen more is most likely to make me resentful and NEVER willing to deal with those people.
