Final snap

Hard to believe this is the final snap of the year - feels such a short time ago that I was introducing my first one - thank you to all of you who have participated with your own snaps and lovely comments.

For my final set I had been thinking of festive snaps but in the end decided to use a water and sky shot I took this week and match it with others from during the year because this is one of my most recurring themes in my photos and a topic that always has me reaching for my camera - probably helped by the fact that I live near the sea so often come across good water and sky shots.


The top one I took this week - the water is Loch Lomond, where I had a family Christmas in a holiday chalet - wet and windy but managed a walk to see the water and get some photos

2nd down taken in June when we were on holiday in Ullapool

3rd down is from my holiday in Spain in September (I clearly like to holiday by water as well as living by it!)

and finally at the bottom is one taken near home in October - it was interesting looking through my sea and sky photos from the year looking for one that had a similar feel to the other 3.

and for the last time I'm looking forward to seeing what caught your eye this week.

What a beautiful SNAP collection. Your water/sky photos have such a calm & peace about them. While not in a SNAP format, I do look forward to seeing these combos of water & sky from your New Zealand jaunt. I know that when we feel unsettled, a walk by the river near us has a calming balm effect.

I too remember my first connection with PAIRS - what fun it was to find twosomes, & then the foursome. Thank you. Looking forward to seeing you New Zealand water & sky photos :)

They are wonderful and so peaceful. It will be interesting to compare our jaunts to New Zealand

These are beautiful Helena. I was looking back through my year hoping to find a set from a recurring theme but I couldn't whittle them down to just 4 and I so wanted to be good this last week.

Nicely snapped. I miss your weekly installments. I hope your 2017 is very snappy nonetheless.

Very nice, in particular the third one. I would love to contemplate in that spot.
I echo what others have already said about your hosting of Snap and safe travels down under. NZ ahoy! Great country.

A lovely set to end a lovely year spent SNAPPING with you! Thanks, as always, for hosting these memes. I think this is my third year participating, and I've enjoyed them all. Safe and enjoyable travels to NZ. We'll all be looking forward to your photos and travelogue.
