2018 In Pictures

I know, I know there’s still a couple of weeks of the year left but I just couldn’t wait to review my photos from 2018. I find choosing favorite photos really difficult, so instead I’ve chosen to pick a photo from each month that tells the story of my 2018.


January is pantomime month for us. On the last day the dance teams get together between performances at a local Italian restaurant for a meal. It’s always lovely to see them having that team spirit between them.

I can’t remember a Winter where we had a good snowfall in December, January and February. I have hundreds of snow photos but chose this one overlooking Kirkbymoorside in North Yorkshire.

Dance festivals happen 3 times each year for us. This shot is from Tadcaster where Verity, with a fire in her belly, won her novice character section! Such a proud parent moment.

April saw the start of a period of good weather such that I can’t remember a summer like it. We were out walking the dogs and trekking through rivers. Duke loves water and sticks I eventually capture a shot of him I’d had in mind for some time.

May is a busy month for me with the Kirkbymoorside 10k taking place. I took some time out and ran up a big hill. The hill was, in fact, Rosebury Topping on the northern edge of the North York Moors National Park. It’s a hill I’ve long admired and wanted to run up (and down).

Spring Bank half terms means the last dance festival of the academic year for our girls. This one was even more special as the dance school put on a production number from La Fille ma Garde – a cut down version of what they did in the showcase back in March. All four of our girls were in this.

Ah summer, you were wonderful. This show from Gormire Lake is bittersweet. One the one hand it was a beautiful, hot summers day and we enjoyed the lake and a walk around it. However, Grace cut her foot open in the water and it quickly turned into a nightmare.

A family day out at Lightwater Valley was the highlight of the month. All the girls were big enough to go on all the rides. V ducked out of the Claw but 3 of my children are in this photo – somewhere!

How could it not be a photo from our fantastic family holiday to Kos? I have so many wonderful memories and photos from that week, but I picked this one of my girls during a day away from the rest of the family, enjoying lunch in Tigaki.

Autumn arrived and we took a trip to Saltburn-by-the-Sea for some fresh air. It was a lovely place and I got a shot I’d long envisaged of the pier there.

November saw me suddenly try my hand at astrophotography. I capture this shot on a hill in the North York Moors closes to Hutton-le-Hole.
