Hyoko, Niigata, Japan
My mum passed away on the first day of this year so today is the eve of her first anniversary.
I still have metal things in the arm I broke. The largest looks like a utensil for serving spaghetti.
There have been some challenges but I have wonderful family and friends and I know I'm lucky to be looked after so well.
I think the best way for me to see out this year is to find something beautiful with my lens and share it with the world.
Hyo Lake in Agano City, Niigata is famous for its swans. 80% are Tundra Swans and the rest are Whooper Swans.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you find something beautiful in your new year.
