The Changing Seasons: January

This year January is wet, as usual, but warmer. The hard freezes and frosts have skipped us over as we splash through an El Niño winter.

I walk to work most days, and in January I leave the office as darkness settles in for the night. On a rare sunny morning I am bathed in weak white light, reflecting off the puddles.

Here, January is grey, often foggy, cold & damp, the darkness goading us to hibernate.

This post is in response to Cardinal Guzman’s Changing Seasons 2016 series (super fun):

“To join the challenge, you simply decide which one of the versions you’ll go for (it doesn’t have to be the same version each month), create a post in your blog and publish it sometime between the 20th and the end of each month.

These are the rules for Version 1 (The Changing Seasons V1):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery.
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

These are the rules for Version 2 (The Changing Seasons V2):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.
  • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!”

I’m going with version 1 this month…To see more responses, or to join in, click here.

  2. A lot of darkness here too. These days the sunset is just around 16:00, when I’m on my way home from work. I’m not really a fan of cold weather, but we’ve been having a cold period which means that I can go ice skating. Gotta make the best out of it. 🙂

      1. I only watch stuff through my computer, but winter is a typical season for binge-watching series. This weekend has been spent mostly outside though. I’d made a lot of arrangements that were taking place outside: tobogganing (sled ride) and ice skating.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, it’s cold – not as cold this year – but we’ll get spring too….eventually. Makes it all worth the wait, eh? I love four seasons after growing up in only two-ish.
