Looking Back At 2022

Here’s a selection of my favourite photos from 2022. They’re not necessarily the best, but they mean a lot to me because of either the subject or a new technique mastered. So while 2022 was less than a stellar year it did bring a fair degree of happiness. I hope it did for you.
