Scandinavian Winter: January in Norway



I have mixed feelings when I think of January. Although it is a rather definitive month - one that marks the beginning of a new year - I feel undecided about it. It could be because with its arrival the festivities are over, or because I prefer sunsets to sunrises but to me it is just the beginning of a long period of awaiting Spring.

January is cold. And although days are getting longer and brighter, the sun rarely shows up. This year there isn't even snow in our South Norwegian forest, so we cannot take our usual cross-country skiing trips following animal footsteps. The lack of snow though prompted me to look for past January beauty and I will share it with you today.
Enjoy the snowy January in years past, the way I've seen it on the South Norwegian coast.
