Winter may be my favourite season, or rather if winter turns up then it's my favourite season. The mountains of the UK are not only more fun to explore under a covering of snow and ice but I think they are more beautiful too. For a photographer winter is also a bonus as sunrises and sunsets are not only more spectacular but more accessible, no requiring late nights or early mornings.
I've been lucky over the past week to get some great images from both ends of the day, this has cheered me up after booking my last holiday of the year one week too late to catch the Scottish Highlands under their first winter coat. With storm force winds forecast this week and a cold rapidly working its way through a mass of tissues I decided a week of wild camping in Scotland was not the best idea and chose to make the most of what I can find here in Yorkshire.
Some of the colours in the sky have been quite amazing, vivid to the edge of what I would have thought possible, I've actually struggled to recreate them after processing the RAW files the blues and yellows often overwhelmed by the pinks and oranges.
