The collection of photos taken on New Year's Day, one from each contributor, has been run in the Themed Topic Forum for a number of years.
Some people take active part and add their photos to the forum thread, as well as attaching the shared description to their image. Many others take the photo and submit it to the site, but don't post to the forum. Others go out for lengthy walks with their cameras and take lots of photos.
I thought I'd bring all these groups together - a total of 90 photographers. I've arranged the images in more or less (map) north to south order and added a brief description where there was none. Spot the Irish contribution.

NH6354 : Muirends Trig Point from the Muirends covered reservoir by Julian Paren
The brow of the hill is the site of a newly refurbished covered reservoir and a Trig Point. The field that houses them is poorly cultivated and has a seasonal pond in a hollow between the reservoir and the Trig Point. The trees are mature and a feature of the local landscape. There is a reasonable view from the Trig Point

NY9375 : A view of Swinburne Castle by Oliver Dixon
The original castle, dating in part from the 14th century fell into disrepair many centuries ago. The main house standing in the middle of an extensive estate is surprisingly recent, dating from 1998. It stands on the site of an 18th century house which was demolished in 1960 because the owners could not sustain the cost of maintenance. The single storey building to the right is the 18th century orangery (Grade II listed).

NY9840 : A victim of storm Arwen? by Trevor Littlewood
The broken tree is alongside a path at the western rim of the valley of the Stanhope Burn; it appears to have suffered damage prior to the recent episode and there's evidence of rot being exposed too; all the same, with the tree being firmly rooted, it looks as if its life will continue. The fall of part of the tree presumably obstructed the path and clearly, chainsaw work has been needed to clear it.

NZ0301 : Descending from Fremington Edge by Andy Waddington
The path taking a direct line from Hurst and down to Castle Farm in Arkengarthdale probably provides the steepest way off (or up) and the relief of getting out of the inevitable buffeting from the wind is tempered by the need for concentration where the rut gets deep and muddy, or lower down as the path becomes very vague and grassy, but still unrelentingly steep. Photography always provides an excuse for a pause and it would be a shame not to take a moment to enjoy the view - not many New Year's days are so warm and sunny.
