Joining in with the recent series of posts, I thought I'd share a picture per month. Through showing only one a month, and wanting to show some variety, I have missed off some favourites. But its been a good exercise

January - Blue Tit

February - Faye

March - Waxwing

April - Groyne at Sunrise

May - Blyth beach

June - Fiery Horse Dealer

July - Broad Bodied Chaser

August - Great Crested Grebe and Chick

September - Tanfield

October - The Storm

November - Fluffy

December - Cullercoats

Cracking set of photo's...

I particularly like the waxwing and the horse trader...

What you need are lenses, more lenses, bigger lenses, better lenses, faster lenses, and when you have these, your pictures will be perfect!

Classy... and a good variety of images. Looking forward to seeing more in 2014.

Superb images and a nice diversity too. A little constructive criticism on June.... the processing has made the dealer and his horse a little self illuminated and thus the processing kind of tales over, but it works artistically.

January is by far my favourite. April, May and December perhaps a little cheesy. march really stands out.

Also so refreshing to actually enjoy your pics for a change without that hideous watermark. It really does make a huge difference with out that distracting carbuncle. I actually spent some time appreciating each one

Thanks everyone for taking time to leave feedback.

Gareth, the horse dealer was a gypsy at Appleby Horse Fair.

Smeggy, I know what you mean re the processing on the horse dealer. I purposely lifted the exposure on him using the new eliptical tool in Lightroom 5

Great idea, a really good way to assess the year from a photographic point of view. And this is a retrospective of the highest quality, very pleasurable viewing. I expect your 2014 collection will be even better.
You can see some of my photos here if you are so inclined

First class throughout Alan. I can't pick a favourite among these, but February, March and June really appeal to me.
