The last photo for 2011 symbolises to me what has been and what is yet to come.
2011 was my first full year in Australia, thus the gum tree is appropriate. 2012 brings the big move to Perth, and the clear blue sky in this photo and the heat of the day make me think of the brilliant Perth sunshine, that hot hot clarity. And the way the sun is shining into the photo from the top left gives me a feeling of hopefulness, of lightness of heart, of good things yet to come.
Happy New Year!
