52 weeks of Peanut Butter is finished!

I had planned some summery shots with sunshine and blue sky in December but the Australian Bushfire Crisis happened. Although we live on the coast, and are some distance from any fires, we were still affected by smoke and haze. I created this first image in my studio...
