Beautifully Backlit

Trying to take pictures of frosty foliage in such low-lying winter morning light wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped it would be – to my eye it seemed the best views were looking towards the sun, sitting so low on the horizon – but of course my camera wasn’t understanding what I wanted to do exposure-wise (my fault, not my camera), so I opted for a couple of dramatic semi-sillouette shots instead… ❤

On a Cold and Frosty Morning

I went out for a relatively early wintery walk this morning, to try to capture the beautiful frosty views on Wanstead Flats, East London, close to where we live… ❤

I love the way the two tower blocks on the edge of the flats give a bit of an urban context to the landscape – we are in East London, after all!  🙂
