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 101 photographers. I've arranged the images in more or less (map) north to south order and added a brief description where there was none.

NG3831 : Carbost village from the War Memorial by Richard Dorrell
The memorial stands on top of a small hill named Knock Langal. This view, looking north west, takes in most of Carbost village and much of the sea-loch, Loch Harport. Carbost is the home to the Talisker whisky distillery - the only whisky distillery on Skye. I suspect the product made here was responsible for a few muzzy heads this New Year's Day morning.
