The main thing I remember about this January is the skies. I never tire of skyscapes, and Orkney never tires of providing stunning ones.
Morning walks started in the dark, and as the month progressed the sun rose earlier and earlier. The saturated neons of the first half of the month gave way to pastels just as the cold spell hit us.
I love snow – even little bits! The past couple of weeks have been below zero with ice making the roads and pavements like a skating rink. Fortunately my granny wagon is excellent in the ice, so it was walks as usual.
At the very end of the month, we had a slight thaw, and I saw these snowdrops. Spring will come!
