January is a cold winter month, but also the month of the first spring-like days: perfect for a walk and for appreciating things that would go unnoticed at any other time of the year.

Tuscany through my eyes – Week 8

04small

Now that my project about Tuscany over the seasons is over, I have decided to start a new project: Tuscany through my eyes. Well, more or less… I am planning on publishing one or more photos of Tuscany every week, and not just some beautiful photos, but images that “match” the way I see my beautiful region at that time of the year. I will publish photos that I have taken and photos that I have not taken but I wish I had! 52 posts to show you Tuscany the way I see it and feel it. Here are the other posts in the series.

Week 8 – The first colours

Usually, January is the coldest month of the year, but it is also the month of the first timid spring-like days. The warm sun rays push everybody out of their homes and into the parks, countryside and beaches for a walk in the open air after the grey, cold days of the end of December and early January.

On these walks, you end up appreciating things that would go unnoticed at any other time of the year.
