A cold but beautiful day...no snow falling, but plenty to see on the surrounding hills. It was a productive day at work - five sacks of mail went out despite there being a distinct lack of staff this week! The upside to the clear, wintry day was that there were beautiful clear skies come night time and it was apparently a great opportunity to see the northern lights. The downside to the wintry part of the day was that there was a howling gale, so I spent half an hour on the hill behind the house trying to remain upright, while the camera did its best in slightly challenging circumstances! Don't think I managed to capture any stunning images tonight...maybe next time!
