Happy New Year! Shetland has treated us to plenty of moody seas and gorgeous skies over the past couple of weeks - a perfect end to a brilliant year. It's been good to catch up with friends and family and get lots of wedding stuff organised (with less than 6 months to go it's about time we started making proper plans). We're flying back to Edinburgh tomorrow so here are some highlights from a holiday back home. You can see how changeable the light and sky has been - watching it shifting from minute to minute is mesmerising.

1 and 2 post-storm swell 3 the hill was littered with feathers after a windy night 4 one of my favourite Christmas presents 5 and 6 sunsets at 2pm 7 in the byre while visiting family 8 the old byres 9 and 10 mirror lochs on a flat calm day 11 tiny island 12 and 13 Poor Ruby sulked for a while after she lost her ball in the waves.


  1. Such beautiful images! Wishing you the happiest New Year, Sarah. I love your blog and all you do!

    P.S. I bought your book. It is exquisite!

    1. Jane! Long time, no speak. I'm sending you lots of mutual blog love. Thanks for being so sweet and I'm delighted you like your book. Happy New Year to you too. S xx
