After a few overcast days, the sunset of our shortest day was filled with light and made for a scintillating Winter Solstice.

We are now taking a short blogging break and will be back on Wednesday 29th December 2021.

Wishing you all a blessed week and for those of you who celebrate, a blessed Christmas too!

The above images feature the final sunset over the Moray Firth in 2019 seen from Nairn beach. The last image in this sequence was first published in the Nairnshire Telegraph on Tuesday 7th January 2020 to accompany an article by the editor titled Farewell to an Old Year – and Welcome to the New. A very big thank you to Iain Bain for putting this edition together.

Wishing you a peaceful Sunday and a wonderful week ahead,
