As you may or may not be aware, Darren (from Photalife) that currently runs the #MySundayPhoto linky has decided to call it a day. Although his linky will no longer be based upon his blog, he has decided to continue his photography and the linky via his Instagram page. I will therefore continue to post each week and will duplicate my pictures on both my Instagram and my blog to continue my current trend of weekly #MySundayPhoto posts.
Getting back to the post, and to the pictures! I was rather spoilt this Christmas as my husband took careful notice to follow my Amazon wish list. I am therefore the proud owner of a Lens Ball (which is much like the crystal ball from Labyrinth only for photography rather than the Goblin King) and whilst I wasn’t entirely sure what I’d photograph with such a thing, I gave it a go earlier this week whilst out at the beach.
Here is one of the many shots which I took whilst out, I adore how the image is flipped and the clouds therefore appear to be resting between my fingers. I also love the clear-cut edges of the sphere and the framing effect which the Lens Ball offers to the image.
I felt this photo was fairly apt given that it features a sunset and the sun is currently setting upon 2018. Here’s to a new year, a new start and new beginnings.

Is there a love lost and found?”
