The Last Day in January

A bright, cold, breezy day at Fountains Abbey. My last photo of the month is the feature photo: it suddenly went all dark and mysterious, just for a few moments. Before – and after – that, it was all sunshine and snowdrops.

For Brian (aka Bushboy)’s Last on the Card.

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

  1. The ruins standing up well to nearly nine centuries worth of Yorkshire Januaries. And, of course, the low winter sun making for some attractive and dramatic photographs.

  2. The ruins look excellent in that light and with the blue sky, though it’s a shame the snowdrops are in the shade as they need sunshine to open their nodding heads.

    1. Don’t you worry about those snowdrops Jude. There are thousands and thousands of them locally, in every kind of situation. My own observation locally is that they seem to do best in light woodland cover.


      1. They do like living under deciduous trees, but seem to need sun on them for the flowers to open fully. It must be magical to have so many around you.


  3. Always the camera you have with you Margaret! I love your stormy looking image, and especially love that you showed it after the clouds passed as well. It looks brrrr….and then not!
