Happy New Year 2016

We went for a walk in our neighborhood and came across trees growing out of boulders. Seems symbolic of the power and tenacity of life. Could symbolize will power and perseverance of some people.

The Christmas plant just went bananas this year. Have no idea where the bananas went.

The total solar eclipse in 2015 was in Faroe Islands—March 20. Here we are at Gjogv Hotel, a rather remote location.

We saw a bit over half of the eclipse time of totality and we were lucky to see that as you may surmise by the superb photo here.
