As the rich colours of Autumn fade and and the gnarled fingers of the trees are laid bare we know that Winter is with us once again. With the cold, crisp air emitting a special purity that creates a special Christmas atmosphere of peace and serenity.
The shorter days give less time for photographic experiences but making the most of the clear skies, incandescent moonlight and the vivid constellations all contribute towards exciting opportunities. As do the wonderful Winter Sunsets and Sunrises which produce the most amazing rainbow of colour that paint the skies and tint the landscape with a resplendent blast of colour and subtle afterglow.
It is very rare that we are graced with a quilt of snow in North Devon but when we do and it kisses the landscape it produces an ambience and scenic picture which is truly magical. The white skies and subdued light with the crunchy snow all add to the unique atmosphere these snowflakes create.
The Winter solstice will soon be upon us and the festive season will be with us once again. Therefore, I wish to take this opportunity to wish all readers a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and to thank everyone for there support over the year.
