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, though none was organised back in 2011.
Contributors - a total of 78 - still went out on New Year's Day and took/submitted photographs, here is my selection.
I've arranged the images in more or less (grid) north to south order and added a brief description where there was none.
