The new year is in full swing. We put away the Christmas decorations, recovered from all the celebrations. The lazy days of indulgence were replaced by early morning commute back to work. With the first week of being back to normal almost over, it’s about time for reflecting on the past year.
Last year witnessed a big change in my photography world. My decision to let go of building wedding and portrait photography business brought me back to my old path. My passion for landscapes was re-ignited, and I gained the freedom to spend more time outside, in the places I love so much. I gradually started to realise where my heart really was. That it’s not only the stunning vistas that can take my breath away. That there is more to beauty than what is just right in front of my eyes. So my path led me to creating images of much quieter nature. Images reflecting silence and solitude, when I feel most at peace and most creative.
Over the last twelve months I have also met many amazing people. Some of them are those of you who give me great support and inspiration on social media sites. The others are extremely talented artists who I met via the Landscapes by Women group. A group we started with my friend Beata Moore in January last year.
With my partner Martin we shared many happy memories, including a holiday of a lifetime. The three weeks we spent touring America were one of the highlights of our year. We saw some breathtaking views, and enjoyed company of some of the nicest people we ever met.
It was a year of self-discovery, a year of walking in a new direction. This year I look forward to discovering where my path will lead me next. I look forward to enjoying the journey to the unknown, learning more about myself and further developing my skills and vision.
I would like to take this opportunity and thank you all for being so wonderful, for all your support. I really appreciate you giving me a glimpse of your time, which is such precious commodity for all of us. Have a great year, full of happy moments worth to remember, and I hope to see you from time to time somewhere along the path, no matter whether it is yours or mine.
