2016, Some thoughts

This will not be a big annual review, more some reflections and thoughts from the past year and maybe some hopes for 2017 as well.

At the beginning of the year I had great opportunities to be out and study nature as much as I wanted. The reason was perhaps not so nice but I put that behind me. I note that although I had the time I did not go on any long trips, but I spent valuable and rewarding time studying animal life at my little stream at home. I had great meetings with both mink, otter and beaver.

In May I started a new job that also meant I had to commute weekly again. The job is great and I’m very happy with everything. Unfortunately there has been very little time for nature- and photo-related activities, but I still feel that I probably managed to get some really good pictures, despite limited time. Next year, I hope that I will have enough time to get out in the nature here in Medelpad.

For 2017, I have some exciting things that I hope for. One is that I will exhibit at Gästrikkonst again. I also hope that we will see some impact regarding natural values, species conservation and biodiversity here in Sweden next year, it is something that is really urgent. Then of course I keep my fingers crossed for some of my friends and loved ones that are ill will be healthy and strong again.

Sorry, no snowy landscapes here. So I’ll show you this picture from Christmas day in a forest in Utanmyra, Falun.

    Happy New Year Per. I have really enjoyed looking at your photographs, they inspire me and I’m aaways impressed by your eye for detail and composition and technical skills. It is easy to forget that there is always so much to discover so close to home.
    There are many of us working in a small way to try to save our biodiversity and convince the world that it is worthwhile. However, even a small group of amateurs can have an impact – http://www.ohbr.org.uk is a good example.
