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.

There was no shared description for the collection in 2012 but I have brought together one image from each contributor who did submit an image taken on New Year's Day - a total of 96 photographers. I've arranged the images in more or less (grid) north to south order and added a brief description where there was none.

Apart from some places in Scotland, New Year 2012 was short on sunshine and shadows, long on damp Morris dancers and muddy puddles.

NJ2366 : New Year's Day 2012 Spynie Wood by Ann Harrison
A lovely sunny New Year's Day in Spynie wood, Moray. The low winter sun cast long shadows and also made a very pleasing day for myself and the wildlife that I was suited to see. Then off for new year dinner, what a perfect day.

NJ3458 : New Year's Day by Anne Burgess
Modern houses in Woodside Place at noon on 1 January. Having been foiled in my attempt to get a Christmas 2011 geograph exactly at noon, I decided to remedy the omission on the first day of 2012.

Looking NNW to the coast at Lossiemouth, with the Lighthouse visible slightly to the left of centre. This view will be spoilt by the proposed Brown Muir Wind Farm. I did actually take the photo on New Years Day 2012, when I walked to Findlay's Seat with my wife and sister-in-law.
