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

NT7573 : Survey Rig off Thorntonloch Beach by Jennifer Petrie
This survey rig was towed into position early yesterday morning. Offshore surveys have begun as two wind farms are proposed to be built in the Firth of Forth. Here the rig is lit up in sunshine on the first day of 2020. Plenty of people and dogs were enjoying a New Year’s Day walk along this beautiful, clean, flat, sandy beach. The sea was calm and little waves gently rolled in on this peaceful scene. At night the rig is lit up with lots of white lights and a few red ones too, making it look quite like a huge Christmas tree out at sea !
