January can be the bleakest month of the year. Having to go back to work, the holidays over and endless grey skies and long nights. I went for a walk in the cold yesterday and returned with a couple of images. They are not going to win any awards, but getting out into the fresh air and seeing a bit of nature always helps to lift the spirits.

Swan and Cygnet

Swan and Cygnet

Went down to the local lakes today so I could see all the babies. There were cygnets and goslings about with very protective parents. The geese hissed a little, but generally they were all well behaved and so I got to get a few descent pictures.

Our Maddie Kat, when she was a baby.  Sleep can be a really good thing, look how happy she is!  I should really get more sleep, and stop staying up to all sorts of ungodly hours!  If you like cats, you can download this photo and set it as your wallpaper (1920×1080).  Just click the photo for the hi-res version first!
