Bermuda: Photos of the week ending January 3rd, 2015
Here we are in the year 2015. No hover boards, hover cars, land speeders or other sci-fi floaty devices we expected to have by now. But what we do have, in spades is the beauty that is Bermuda. Even though still a tiny spec in the middle of the Atlantic the sights around me never cease to fill my senses with both awe & respect if not also gratitude to live here.
New Year's Eve I thought should be special for my last series of photos to end out an amazing year. I looked up where precisely the line of the sunset would fall in relation to the South and West edges of Bermuda and settled on Elbow Beach all the way to the Coral Beach end of the sand.
There were a few people on the beach who had the same idea as I, to see the last sunset of the year in a special spot and as you can see in the images above the sunset gods did not disappoint.
New Year's Day was then upon us and a walk was in order.
Greenery around Spittal Pond
Spittal Pond was the morning walk of choice location on New Year's Day. Fabulously quiet, peaceful and beautiful. There was a massive white heron that was just out of range for a photo, or perhaps he or she was just a little shy.
In and around the pond, ducks stood in the warm January sun (yes warm, in fact hot!) and they even took quick swims around the pond presumably to cool off.

There are so many little different components to the natural beauty that is Spittal Pond. Well worth taking a look and walk around if you've not been in a while.
Earlier in the week there was a little drama down-town in the area of Court Street with armed officers in attendance to serve a warrant for what must have been of some serious nature for them to turn up with such a show of force.
Hopefully this is not a preview of the year ahead in terms of troubles on the Island. With the announcement of Bermuda hosting the 2017 America's Cup 35 event and all that goes with it in terms of opportunity for all Bermudians this will not be the case.
Here's a final image to keep us all upbeat again shot at Horseshoe Bay from on top of the cliffs in a hand-held 10 shot panorama stitched together in Photoshop:
