We absolutely love it when our Visual Content team send us the ‘Best of’ galleries and January’s was no exception. January tends to get a bad rap – the month which marks the end of the holidays, hosts the ‘most depressing day of the year’ (otherwise known as ‘Blue Monday’) and in general is pretty cold, damp and wet.

In defiance of these associations our ‘Best of January‘ gallery has cherry-picked some of the most unique, creative and highest-quality images proving that our Fotolia contributors worldwide are snapping their way through beating the January ‘blues’.

You can check out the whole gallery here or view some of the selected highlights below. Enjoy!
