St Albans in January

This month, I have spent many hours walking around my home town, St Albans.  Of course, for me, walking is always accompanied by photography and these four tall and bowing trees are forever eager to appear in my shots.

For any of you that read my blog regularly, you have probably noticed me moaning about our wet, grey January weather.  But there have been a few beautifully sunny days as proven by my blue-skied images.

The hot drinks, puffy clothing and woolly hats tell us that it’s winter, albeit a very mild one.

But “no snow?” you’re probably asking.  Well, there was a little just a few hours before I was flying off so no beautiful shots in town, just this early morning view from my window.

I’ll bring you back to St Albans several times this year so that we can enjoy the Abbey and roman ruins, and those four trees, during the different seasons.

    • Hi Jude Didn’t feel up to it last year – wasn’t sure I’d be at home enough to take the photos. This year I’m determined to walk into town regularly even if I’m away a lot

  1. Judging from those tall treees, it’s generally windy in your area. Your winters looks prettyu mild compared to the ones we have in Oslo, that’s for sure! Thanks for joining the challenge.


    • Oh yes, very mild compared with you. Not sure that it’s particularly windy. Not sure, but it might be the uneven ground more than the wind. The ground is very up and down as there are still lots of roman remains under the park land
