IT HAS been a year of "the new normal". We have seen fires, floods, storms and a global pandemic.
There have been stories of tragedy, loss and heartache, but there has also been joy and hope. Every step along the way the Newcastle Herald photography team has been there to immortalise the moments that made up 2020.
We hope this collection of stories and photos from the year is a reminder of how far we have come and the experiences we have had in a year like no other.
See you later 2020!
