New Horizon

Get the jump on your New Year’s resolutions in this week’s photo challenge.

As I write, a winter storm — with 70km winds and driving snow — rages outside. You’d never know that we had the warmest fall on record with temperatures well above average, and on the day this photo was taken, sunshine that revealed a bright horizon.

In this image, nature — in the form of bent prairie grass — is actually pointing directly at the far shore, where the fog is lifting from the water. It’s saying, “Look ahead! How will you make the best of this beautiful day?” I love how it allowed me not only to enjoy a lovely moment, but also to shift my perspective to the future.

This week, we’re challenging you to think ahead and show your work in a representative photo. If you set New Year’s resolutions, give them some thought a few weeks early. If resolutions aren’t your style, show us something that you want to achieve — it could be setting a new goal, making plans, or even tackling that pile of laundry waiting by the washer. The goal is to get out of the busy “now,” and imagine your new horizon. Go!
