Goodbye 2012 – despite the rain you’ve been a fantastic year…

I feel like I got a lot of waffling out of my system in my previous blog so I’ve decided to keep it simple – sit back, relax, and enjoy the pretty pictures…

  1. Cool pics Rob. I didn’t know you’d got pics of prana… did you get any of me mid lob?! Ad

    • Hey Adam,

      I got a few of you in a very similar position to this, you were there for some time after all 😉 Unfortunately I didn’t get any of the fall itself, although I do find this slightly strange since that too went on for a long, long time!

      Shall we make some more bank holiday plans for 2013?
