Sunny Winter

Bluefolds on the hillside below Ben Rinnes
Beautifully lit trees in Glenlivet

It is hard to believe that we are already in the 2nd month of 2012. Where did January go? I am glad to say that the weather, apart from some high winds, has been much milder and dryer and sunnier than for the last 2 winters. The last few days although very cold, has been very sunny and it has tempted me to don my outdoor clothes and walk in Glenlivet and then further a field with a friend over to  Ullapool on the west coast. 
 I have been watching on the TV about David Hockney's new Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London which is all to do with new ways of taking photos and painting and how to see more in the landscapes that we take for granted on a daily basis. I am certainly trying to be more observant as I drive around Scotland. It is lovely to be able to drive around and enjoy the stunning winter light.
