When I look back through the collection of photographs of the day I get reminder of what I've been doing, the projects I've been working on, the mood I've been in - and very often where I've been.
As I was picking through the latest batch of pictures from Shetland, I realised that I've reached the 365 day landmark for pictures taken around the Shetland Islands.
My first picture of the day from Shetland was taken in January 2007 outside the Sumburgh Hotel looking towards the Sumburgh Head Lighthouse.

In the intervening 9 years I've taken pictures on almost all the Shetland Islands, from Fair Isle in the south to Unst in the North, and from Foula to Whalsay.

I've seen lots of boats - of various vintages and in various states of repair.

I've got pictures of beaches covered in snow, and bathed in sunlight.

I've taken pictures at sunrise (occasionally) and sunset (regularly).

Since 2010 my pictures of the day have appeared on Blipfoto - and if you want to explore more (without the one-a-day limit) there are lots more pictures on Flickr.
