I can not believe that it is New Year’s Eve and tonight we wave goodbye to 2015 and welcome in 2016. Madness!
2015 has had its hard moments. But there have also been some wonderful times and I have memories that I will treasure.
That is why I have decided to link up with the final My Captured Moment of 2015. My Captured Moment is a beautiful linky run by my gorgeous friend Heledd who blogs at Running in Lavender. The idea is simply to share photographs that have captured a special moment in life.
For my last post of the year, I wanted to share with you my five favourite photographs from 2015.
My Captured Moment – My five favourite photos of 2015
It has been very tough to pick only five photographs from this year. Over the past 12 months, I have been trying to improve my photography. And I have taken more photographs than ever. In 2015, more than ever before, there are 100s of photographs that I love.
But after a strict process of elimination, I have decided on my favourites and I would now like to present my five top photographs from 2015.
In early January 2015, we wrapped up warm and went “to see animals” at the Museum of Kent Life. We had a lovely day out. And Little Miss H enjoyed meeting all the animals and splashing in the mud in her wellie boots.
This is my favourite photograph from that trip. It demonstrates the close bond that Mr H and Little Miss H share. And I love the way her head gently rests against her Daddy’s shoulder as they look at the horse.
In May, we celebrated Little Miss H’s second birthday with a trip to Whitstable Beach.
Little Miss H and I adore the seaside and I could quite happily live near the sea.
We had a fabulous day. The weather was stunning. We played on the beach, wandered along the high street, ate ice cream and stared out to sea.
Mr H took Little Miss H to Emmetts Garden for a daddy and daughter day trip. And that is when he took this photograph.
I love this photograph of Little Miss H picking wild flowers. Stunning!
Sometimes Little Miss H’s beauty takes my breath away. I don’t know who she gets it from. But she is stunning.
This has to be one of my all time favourite photographs of her. She looks so grown up. And looking at this, it is hard to think that she was only a few months past her second birthday.
In fact, this photograph inspired me to write a post about holding back time and stopping my little girl from growing up too fast.
Our new house backs on to beautiful woodland. And a leisurely walk through the woods has now become a weekly activity for Little Miss H and I.
The woods were beautiful in Autumn and it has been fascinating to watch the changing seasons unfurl on the trees in the wood.
There were so many beautiful photographs from our trips to the woods. The light from the dappled trees is magical and Little Miss H always looks extra pretty when she has rosy cheeks.
But this photograph is my absolute favourite.
We had been walking for a while and Little Miss H decided that she’d had enough. She flopped down on this tree trunk by the stream. She looked so peaceful.
I love this photograph especially because I find her blue eyes bewitching and she has the cutest impish expression on her face. I imagine she is planning to be mischievous.
I hope you have had a fabulous 2015. And that 2016 will be the wonderful year that you hope and wish for.
Happy New Year, lovely readers. See you on the other side.
