These photos were taken last night, New Year’s Eve 2014, from the top of the Big Hill on my relatives farm near Auburn. I went out there to see the sun go down on the year, after a busy hour or so immediately beforehand with a septic tank that had to be pumped out – dealing with the shit (as Wendy said when I spoke to her a little while ago) before raising my eyes to the sky! It was a beautiful evening, in a peaceful place. Birds twittering and a bit of a breeze. There were planes on their way across from Perth – you can just see the jet trail in the last picture above, so the bustling world isn’t so far away wherever we are. I took another shot looking east (towards the new year you could say) – there’s even a road to take if we choose…

and, for another perspective, the moon perched above the ridge of the hill, on the cusp of the old and new years. Here’s hoping 2015 will be a good one for us all.

    Happy New Year from windy Northumberland where the sun rose over the North Sea very late on New Years Day at about 8.35, due to set at about 15.47, by which time I’ll be sitting round a bonfire in the hills with friends and good food. Wishing you all peaceful and healthy 2015. Romi x

    • Hi Romi,
      Lovely to hear from you and to hear that the sun got to you eventually after leaving us on new year’s eve! Hope you have a great year and that the bonfire goes well…
