As Autumn slowly fades into Winter and the mornings get darker there is nothing more exhilarating than being greeted by a cold, frosty morning. Then dressing up warmly and venturing out into the stillness of the day with your breath firing steamily before you and the ice crunching beneath your feet.
There are so many wonderful photographs to be taken when the weather honours us with its magical abilities, be it with your iphone, hand held camera or with more advanced designs. Just the sheer delight of seeing the sun slowly rising and peeping through the trees, creating a glow which then glimmers brightly and creates a cluster of sparkling dew like diamonds, is awe inspiring.
I love the serenity of the countryside and listening to the dawn chorus in the distance as the birds serenade the opening of a new day. Walking through the once green fields, covered in a glaze of icy splendour, as the cattle search for that spare blade of grass. With the overhanging trees trailing frozen shards like long icy fingers which glisten in the sunlight. Purity at its best.
So the next time you open your blinds and see that sprinkling of nature painting the landscape get your camera and re-create that moment in time because I know you will not be disappointed.
