Colors of January

This month, there's no avoiding snow and ice as I take pictures of color combinations found in nature.

It's getting more and more difficult to find hints of color outside, as the palette of the world around me shifts toward white and wintry.

I'd love to see the color combinations in the natural world around you!!


Icicle


Seaweed


Ice on the Oyster River


Snow-covered furrows


Birch


Rose hips and the Lamprey River


Mallards

If you want to join in the fun, it's easy:
  • Post photos of the colors in nature this month on your blog - linking back to this post so your guests can find everyone else's entries
  • Put a link to your post in this MckLinky list, including your location!!
The list will be open until February 1. Can't wait to see the colors where you live!



Previous months:
Colors of December
Colors of November
Colors of Late October

A few days ago I made the pictures for the blog I linked here. They double as posts for the ABC-along on Ravelry.
It was good I took phots when I did: an hour later everything was covered in snow again and it's still (very) white here, and cold!
I love your photos and find lots of colour in it!

What beautiful pictures! Right now the only color we have going on is white! Yes its snowing hard!

The red of the building, the blue sky, and the gold of the grasses/reeds would be a nice combination in a woven piece.

Colours of January - you've really captured New Hampshire. I was hoping to visit but have now changed plans and am staying in Seattle a while longer. Am busy collecting my colours - will post soon.

I've always loved that green color on the mallards. It's so rich looking -- almost velvet-like. As always, your photos are awesome.

Ummm - I don't really have colors for SC, but I do have the New Zealand ones - I'll get to work on that!

Actually I like the subdued winter colors. Yours really make the blue sky sing! I still have a lot of green, but we've had very few days of blue sky.

Beautiful photos! I like the ice-covered river especially well. I doubt that I can manage to do a colors of January post, but I'll come back some other month.
