What to look for in Winter ...

After reading the wonderful What to look for in ... series by Watson and Tunnicliffe and being inspired by Nick Campbell, I wanted to share some what to look for in winter photographs with you.  I think it would be lovely to make this a monthly thing and maybe we could all share photographs of what we have found during the month?

During the past few weeks I have discovered panda shaped tree knots, leaves hanging on by a thread, cold sheep and frosty rivers.

The light at this time of year is generally sparse and in Wales it is usually tinged with grey, but there are those moments when the light is perfect.  It is soft and highlights every aspect of the natural world.  Every vein of a leaf, every drop of dew, each seen in a glorious light.  

So the next time the rain gives over and the sun comes out, pack some sandwiches, pick up your camera/phone and take a walk.  Document the wonderful world around you.  Be that trees and leaves or pillar red post boxes and London buses.  Just look around you, take some deep breaths and enjoy the surroundings.




  1. I love these! Especially the panda head in the tree. Lots of love and happy 2013 xx

  2. this collection is beautiful, I adore winter.
    it's summertime here in Australia and in some respect you can fins the same things, expect instead of leaves and trees dead for the winter, you get grass and weeds dead for the summer! If I had to choose, I'd choose winter. :)
