Although 2012 is only one month old, it is time for me to start the 2013 calendar.
I have talked to the printer, and I will go see him in a few weeks.
Here are the pictures I think I will use.
I hope you like them.


  1. They are all beautiful, Robert, and with a marvellous light, which the best wish for a happy new favourite is April. I felt happy and as light and free as those little white clouds in that pure blue...thank you for sharing all this. Ciao,Adele

    1. I have started to feel, Adele, that it is a calendar of light, gaining its feeling from how the light shifts throughout the year. April has actually been difficult for me to decide about, so thank you for sharing your feelings of lightness from this picture. Ciao, Robert

  2. Sono tutte stupende come tutte le tue foto! A me piace più di tutte la penultima. Complimenti, ciao e buona giornata! Cri : )

    1. Hi Cristina,

      the November picture comes from Hen Cove, a place where I love to walk. It is a small place with big views !

      take care,
