Week 1 has been a bit longer than the usual seven days. We hope you all enjoyed a few days off to celebrate a new year and all the opportunities that it brings.
Unox Nieuwjaarsduik 2017 in the Netherlands
Most people in the Netherlands use the rest of the New Year's day to recover from parties they have been, but there are also a lot of people who will attend a polar bear plunge on one of the beaches. The most famous one is the Unox Nieuwjaarsduik in beach resort town Scheveningen. 10.000 people dived collectively in the sea to celebrate 2017. And it was a cold one, because the chill temperature was below 0 degrees. The Dutch Photographers Rutger Geerling, Kevin Verkruijssen, Heidie Duteweert, Joey Timmer and Albert van Leeuwen were in Scheveningen to document this edition.Open this photogallery >
The Photos Of 2016 Week 52
We still owed you the pictures from the last week and a few days of 2016.
Hunting for gooseneck barnacles
Spanish fishermen dart in between huge, deadly waves that hammer the Ferrol coastline in northwest Spain, in search of prized gooseneck barnacles, a rare delicacy that brings in money in a region struggling since the collapse of the shipbuilding industry.
I actually had these last night in a Lisbon restaurant and they were very flavoursome and meaty.
Aleppo before the war vs Aleppo now
Aleppo used to be a city of millions. A city of beautiful square, markets and boulevards. But that was before civil war came to town and completely destroyed the city and the lives of the people that lived there.Open this photogallery >

Best Pictures Of 2016
I just checked out what I wrote in 2015 and it turns out nothing has changed. Absolutely nothing. Syria is still one big mess. Innocent refugees still want to flee countless frightening war zones. The Brexit has isolated and divided Britain a little more. Trump has done the same in the US. France was once again hit with terrorist attacks. And falling oil prices have given companies and consumers the excuse not to care about the environment as much.
I would be really good if we could let 2016 be and concentrate on making 2017 a year to never forget for the right reasons.
