Twelve Months of Covid – December

The festive season is nearly upon us – the world looks grey and cold but there are red berries, and hopefully something to look forward to.

Looking back, there have been some good things to come out of what seems like a perpetual lockdown. Nature has had time to breathe, and I’ve taken more photographs than I thought I would back in March.

Zoom has been a lifeline to many – the Royal Photographic Society, have put on more talks and presentations than I’ve ever been to. I feel more a part of that than I have in all the years I’ve been a member.

The camera club has flourished. We have had more speakers in the last 10 months, than I’ve seen in the last 10 years….. it’s been inspirational.

Yes, I’ve panicked a lot, cried some, worried about friends and relatives all over the world, but somehow, for us at least, we got through to December without too much tragedy.

I’ve learned how to make silly things, and edit them – I’ve used a lens ball more than I thought I would – and I’m half way through a course that will let me use the drone commercially…… (Assuming I pass the exam of course)….

Next year has to be better – I can only hope the vaccination process comes on, and that we can all move into a better stage of our lives by Easter……

Take care, stay safe, keep your distance…………

On the first month of covid – we went to Woodhall Spa
On the second month of covid – we went to Humber Bridge
On the Third month of covid – we went as far as the garden pond
On the fourth month of covid – we were still in the garden
On the fifth month of covid – we went on bike rides, but mostly stayed at home
On the sixth month of covid – we went to the local woods
On the seventh month of covid – we headed to the beach
On the eighth month of covid – we stayed in again
On the ninth month of covid – we flew……
On the tenth month of covid – we headed to the woods
On the eleventh month of covid – we went into the wolds
On the twelfth month – we are requested to stay indoors and only meet relatives for a 5 day window………..

OH, and I know this is early, but Merry Christmas !!!

  1. Always good to read your Blog ! I joined the RPS early this year and so glad I did. I have really learned so much from the workshops and enjoyed different talks. It has been a God send. Some of the workshops have been so good the group have decided to carry on – or meet up socially by Zoom, its been wonderful so well done RPS ! Look forward to your drone pics !


  2. Merry Christmas to you too! I have enjoyed your Twelve Months of Covid and your positive take on your year and seeing more of your beautiful photographs. I am sure you will use the drone responsibly. I must admit I hate being somewhere peaceful, enjoying the quiet and then from nowhere hearing the buzzing sound of a drone. I drive myself demented looking for it in the sky!
