A New Year: The beginning of a new year is like a sunrise. It's the beginning of something new. Renew, refresh, and start again. New Year's Day and sunrises are, to me, symbols of renewing, refreshing, and starting again; another opportunity to make things better, find something new, explore something or somewhere you've never done or seen, or just look at something old in a way that you have never looked at it before. Make the most of 2013, because the next New Year will be here before you know it. I've changed my Selected Favorites tab to display a dozen of my favorite photos of 2012. I hope you enjoy them and will be inspired to make your own discoveries of "The Beauty and Color of Nature!"
