A Big Change in 2021 — Lens-Artists Challenge #180, Sunday Stills and CFFC.

Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Tina: Favourite images of 2021, Terri’s Sunday Stills & Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge.

These first shots are not just some of my favourites for 2021, but of all time. I enjoyed this session in particular because I arrived at Fannyside Lochs at sunrise & the conditions I found were as I expected. I felt I was able to get my eye in quickly, & of course, Lensy made an appearance.

…and so to the big change mentioned in the title; the arrival of our e-bikes. My wife (Susan) & I, have been car-free for nearly 10 years now & pre-covid would get around on public transport. Once covid came along, we decided public transport was a risk too far, so any travelling was done on foot. All this changed in May when our bikes, Stormy & Kali arrived & we were once again mobile. This photo & the new found sense of freedom that it represents, is our favourite of the year.
