Colourful Year in Aberdeenshire


The thing that struck me in the first week that we moved to the Howe o’ the Mearns, Aberdeenshire, is just how colourful it is. So many rainbows! Such rich tones, from the bright reds of the soil to the sunny yellows and lush greens of the grass! Beautiful. Bit by bit I hope to record some of the colourful sights that punctuate the year here. It’ll take me years to complete it and fill in the place-markers…

March: I missed photographing the snowdrops that carpeted the graveyard either side of the Kirkie Steps in Montrose, but caught these beautiful crocuses as they’re starting to think about giving way to narcissi.

January: [add photo: scarlet sunset with the windfarm near Garvock Hill silhouetted black against the striped red sky].

Lots of rainbows this time of year
