The colours of nature in January

Hello  apologies again, it's seems ages once again since I have visited here. I have read so many times of the years of other bloggers whose posts become less frequent until they stop writing completely and it is easy to see why as other things take priority and you get out of the habit. Just before Christmas my blog passed it's seventh anniversary and after so many years it can feel as of all the other words have been said before. However living in such a stunning location, no day is ever the same and nature always provides a different view to admire. January can always seem a long a dismal month but maybe these images will change your mind - it can be so colourful too!















These pictures were taken only two days apart showing the sun rising over the island of Portland. It surprised me how different the location of the sunrise was in such a short period of time!




Did anyone manage to see the Super Blood Wolf Moon? Having woken up early for so many morning before hand we woke up too late to see it but the moon was so bright lighting up the clouds so beautifully below.

I'll be back at the end of the month with another wander ' Through the Garden Gate', hopefully see you then.Thank you for popping by.

  1. Beautiful photos! When we lived in Weymouth we lived in Caroline Place and we were literally 2 minutes walk from the beach. At least once a week we would go for early morning walks along the beach as the sun was rising ( not so much in the summer as the sun rose much to early LOL ) It seems such a long time ago now and I still miss living there. Best, Jane x

  2. Much enjoy seeing your world. We had a very bright moon, but not the blood moon.

  3. Lovely images as usual Sarah - I especially like the one of the cliffs shinning across the bay.
    When you have been blogging for as long as we have it seems inevitable that it eventually becomes harder to keep up the pace. I tend to use my blog like a memory notebook and if people are happy to join me on the journey then that is an added bonus, but I blog far less than I used to.

  5. Glad you are hanging in there and still sharing your wonderful photos. I rely on you to give me my regular Dorset fix. No blood moon sightings here, much too cloudy! B x

  6. Glorious images Sarah. I don’t mind January so much. We’ve turned a corner and each sunrise greets a longer day bringing us closer to Spring.
    I hope to join you for Through the Garden Gate, things are stirring early this year and I really should get out there and capture it before it’s all moved on again!

  7. Good morning dearest Sarah! I know, blogging has definitely challenged us over the years to continue in the same manner; I miss so many of my blogging friends who no longer blog, and I have moved over to Instagram which has been good for me as a photographer. I am challenged there to improve. However, blogging has an extra connection that I miss, but it sure is good to see you back here again, sharing your gorgeous world.

  8. Such a lovely nature colours meander - unsurprisingly I adore the cliff face image, it looks like a row of people all leaning on each other sideways, all worn so smooth in soft stone colour. Delightful. As is your eager pooch!

  9. I find it difficult to keep up with my blog too, Sarah and I often feel that I've said it all before. But I do enjoy blogging when I can find the time and don't want to give up with it. I didn't see the super moon, I find it difficult to get up early on these dark mornings. Lovely photos.

  10. I always enjoy your wonderful photos showing your part of the world.... so very different to mine. .. one of the great pleasure of blogging is getting a personal view of life from othe parts of the world..
    We didn’t see the blood moon either... a pity to miss that one.

  11. I think many people stop blogging because so few people comment on their posts and that discourages them. It does discourage me.
    I did catch a few photos of the moon about 3 minutes past totality. I'm on the West Coast of the US.
    Lovely photos! I am planning a(nother) trip to England this spring!!

  12. I like January. I like all of winter... there may be a lot of grey uninspiring day but there is always something nice to see if you look and there's all the winter weather to enjoy too - ice, frost, snow...

    These photos are beautiful as always!, you've captured plenty of the good things about winter here.

    I didn't see the eclipse. The moon was showing nicely around midnight, but then the cloud thickened of course.

  13. It was my anniversary too in January - I still remember receiving your first comment and it has been a delight getting to know you and your blog. What a lot of beautiful pictures you have given us in these 7 years.
