The time between Christmas and New Year’s is a perfect one to look back on the year that is coming to an end, and to marvel at its wonders and joys, as well as to reflect on its challenges and bittersweet moments. They’re all part of the great mystery of life…
I thought I’d go back through my images to select some that are meaningful to me. These are not necessarily my best, but they do resonate with me and represent a year full of wonderfully rich memories.
I’ve preserved these images in photobooks and archives for the future. I’m grateful to have them and be able to look at them any time I want to bring back so many days and moments in all their glorious colour and intensity.
But there are many more moments and memories from this past year that I don’t have pictures of. I am just as thankful for the ones that remain alive only in my mind’s eye.

Beautiful images, Sherry! I always have loved your photos on the boat (and am a bit envious, too!). Your work is always gorgeous- and frameworthy! So many terrific shots and magical moments captured- I especially love the light on the barn- and the one of your husband with the dog! Thanks for the retrospective!
Seems you had a pretty amazing year, Sherry. These images are spectacular! You always find the most beautiful light!
What a beautiful year and what a beautiful way to remember it … with awesome photos! Happy New Year, Sherry!
Your photographs are so lovely. Thanks for sharing!
So many photo’s to love here Sherry…such a beautiful year you have had…but I’m a sucker for a tender moment and you have a few…Early Morning…with just a glimpse of your husband behind the glass..so wonderful, with those of a new day on the water…
2. Your husband holding tight to Charles…I just love that one…melts me.
3. Your husband again walking with the two children…that one really tugs at my heartstrings and also 4. Tender Moment…you can feel the love…I hoped you made a framed copy for both of them….those are the ones that jump out at me….but the first one is strong also…it reminds me of perhaps Heaven peeking through the clouds to let us know that all is well with those that are no longer with us…I see skies like that sometimes and I always say hi to my people when it happens…
This is a lovely collection of some of your finest work…in the “heart department”…I told you I was a sucker for tender moments…
Happy New Year Sherry…
So many are my favorites as you posted throughout the year, Sherry! But, Charles stole the show with your hubby! That one is just priceless. A beautiful look back, and I can’t wait to see part II. Always a delight to come here to visit! Wishing you a Happy New Year!!
Wonderful post, Sherry. Wishing you a new year of exquisite light and fun subjects. Keep your camera ready. 🙂
such a beautiful glimpse of your year, with wonderful memories in each one of them so heartfelt in each of these. Looking forward to part 2 and also 2015 with you my friend.
Exquisite photos – and a great year! I enjoy your blog so much and look forward to 2015 with your posts. Happy New Year!
What an absolutely beautiful “look back” Sherry. You seem to capture perfect light in all your images … oh that first sunrise – wow! And your portraiture photography is fantastic. Wishing you the happiest of new years!
Your pictures are always so beautiful and touching. Thanks again for sharing those little jewels 🙂
Thank you so much. Lovely of you to drop by…
Happy New Year to you too Laurie! From the sounds of your plans it will be a full and exciting one!

Lovely images, all – I’d say it was definitely good year, photographically!
I’m glad to hear you had great light on Christmas day. We did too.
