Good evening, sorry to be so late with this post but all the family arrived just as we got home from our day out and stayed to tea and have just left. Would have left this until tomorrow but I had been preparing this photo entry all day and wanted to get it in this year. It is a very cold night here as I think it is all over the UK today we have -3 c here that's 27f which is cold for here and it is still only 9pm.
This is the last sunrise of the year from my bedroom window it was not spectacular but it was very pretty. As we would be away all day and we would be travelling back into the sunset I thought I may just be lucky enough to record sunrise and sunset on the 31st of December. We had a lovely day out a nice run in the car to St Andrews (I think I should move there) had a picnic watching the tide come in stopped off at Birnie Loch on the way home will show pictures of that later maybe tomorrow. As we travelled home again the sunset got better and better until finally I thought this was the best I would be able to get.
When we arrived home I was in the kitchen making a nice hot drink after a cold day out and this is what I saw out of my Kitchenette window.
If you look very carefully in the left hand corner you will just make out Venus it looked a lot closer than it does in the picture it was very spectacular to see I have never seen it like this before the sky was so clear.
Finally this is the way it looked after dark no other stars were visible it looked strange just The New Moon and Venus.
So now it just leaves my to wish you all a Very Happy New Year.
