Winter light

January 11th, 2015 § 2

Each year, in the coldest and darkest days of winter, I have to make an effort to keep my spirits up by noticing beauty where I can. This year is no different, and is perhaps compounded by Scotland’s incredibly few daylight hours. It’s unnerving to look up at noon to see, when it’s not raining, sleeting or snowing, a weak sun barely clearing the housetops. It makes me feel like I’m on a different planet, and maybe I am.

I go outside as often as I can, and walk for miles around the city. Thankfully the city cooperates, and where natural light is scarce cheerful electric lights and fires have blazed all winter in what seems a concerted effort to beat back the dark. Here’s some wintery color and light that have caught my eye these last few weeks.

    For so many years, I have been meaning to visit Scotland. I have always planned it up in my head, but wound up going somewhere else instead. Once I even went to Finland.

    Your pictures and nice words compel me to finally go visit. Maybe this year?

    You should! I have only seen a tiny bit of the spectacular countryside, but Edinburgh alone has enough to keep one busy for a long time!
