TUESDAY, Dec. 29 Right now, we’re seeing plenty of news and story roundups of “the best” from this tough year. Yet, there are options to take the edge off those sad notes and remind you that Coastal Georgia and the rest of the world is such a spectacular place: Photo galleries.

The Ogeechee Riverkeeper just released its photo awards for the year — including this little guy caught coming out of his shell by Wesley Hendley.

FUNNY WILDLIFE category winner: Pond Slider in camo, Wesley Hendley, 2020. George L. Smith State Park, Twin City, Georgia.

And while we’re at it, here’s another 2020 gallery from the Pew Charitable Trusts and its most popular images from its Instagram site this year.

And one more — this set of galleries is pretty fabulous from National Geographic. A bonus: There’s even one for 2020 in maps and graphics.
