Snowy days of winter

It is a sunny Saturday morning, but at seven it was not so bright...

Overnight the snow had fallen and in the dawn there were dark clouds obscuring the sun threatening even more snow (see the pic on the left of my garden in Yell taken just after seven this morning.) One could never say that the weather in Shetland is boring! Yet even in these cold days of the winter, before the bulbs have started to show, some days have been full of sun. It has been good enough to allow walks to work, wrapped up warm against the wind, and what a great start to the working day. Beautiful scenery, stunning light and time and space to think and be inspired. Yes, life in Shetland, even in winter is good.
