Winter in the Park

Think I may have explored every inch of our local park over the last 12 months. As it has become the source of our exercise, outdoor escape, and photographic inspiration.

The park goes through many changes during the seasons, some subtle and some not so much. From the daffodils in bloom in Spring, the wildflowers in Summer, the grass showered in the golden leaves of Autumn, to the frozen landscapes & stick figure trees in Winter.

In Winter especially when it snows the park becomes a Winter Wonderland. I love how the snow frames the stream that runs along the edge of the park and how the trees look almost like silhouettes against the blankets of snow.

Winter may not be my favourite season, but snow brings me a little flurry of joy amidst the Winter blues. #MomentsOfJoy

Bleak Mid-Winter

Although I’m definitely not a fan of Winter, the recent snowfall has made for some nice photographic opportunities without having to venture out too far.

While out for a Winter’s walk there was quite a dense mist coming in over the fields and intermittent flurries of snow, which created some really atmospheric snow scenes. The weather may have been a bit bleak but the chilly Winter’s air was actually quite refreshing and wasn’t too cold.

As you have probably gathered there was one particular tree that caught my attention. After spending some time and many shots later trying to get the perfect photograph, I think I have achieved what I had hoped for. These particular shots although they may look black & white are in fact in colour.

I almost never go out with an image in mind of what I want to capture, a theme maybe but never a final image. I let the world around me just happen and see what catches my eye and my imagination. This Winter’s walk was no exception.
