Looking back at 2018

I am currently doing my end of year reflection and setting my goals for 2019. They're going to be much the same as last year's goals, with a few variations. I will, once again, be taking part in a Weekly Alphabet Challenge over on Flickr. I've done this for a few years and it's an interesting way of making me take photos that are not just yet more Welsh landscape. Looking back over the past couple of years, I have done better this year in that I didn't miss a single week, but also done worse because only 67% of the photos were on-topic. In past years I was hitting approximately 80% on-topic. So that will be one goal, to get the on-topic photos above 75% again. Here's the mosaic of weekly photos.
