BRENT PENNINGTON Christmas tree and ornaments during the holidays, 23 December 2012.

A very happy (and belated) holidays to all! I know that the big days have both passed, but I still wanted to put it out there for my readers, along with the hope that they were filled with good friends and good times.

And with that, we’re back here at TRP. It was a much-needed break and gave me time to fully recover from my bout of flu, but also to recharge the old creative batteries and simply enjoy the season without worrying about what I was going to put on here.

I’m sorry to say that I didn’t do much shooting in the past two weeks – really in the past month, even. I shot a few frames of my Christmas tree (fake, for the first time in my life). I liked the patterns of light and shadow it casts in the living room. And I took the camera with me to New Year’s Eve, but never took it out of the bag – possibly because I ended up falling asleep for two hours and only just woke up in time for the whole Times Square ball-drop thing.

But things are shaping up. We have some snow and some nice weather coming to enjoy it in. And with the colder temperatures, the eagles should be starting to appear out on the Delaware River. I didn’t make it out there at all last year, since the waterways never froze up. But I’m hopeful that this year will rebound from a late start and be good for eagling. (Plus I’m excited to see how the new kit handles things.)

I’ve got the usual “year in review” and “best of” posts coming soon, as well as a bit of a look ahead at the new year. Stick around…
