Walking at sunrise
It's winter here and after several months of lockdown, working from home, and government restrictions, we are finally allowed out to walk in some beautiful national and private parks. Entry numbers are limited so you have to get there early, which is great, as it means you can get to experience the fresh cold air and the natural environment waking up as the sun rises over the horizon. The first time we did this after such a long time of not being allowed to, the experience felt quite special and we took time to appreciate just how wonderful our natural world is, and how it can easily be taken for granted.
A cold start to the walk
It's cold here at the moment which means we sometimes have some crisp morning frost on the vegetation. I love photographing this and then photographing the changes as the sun rises and warms the air and ground.

The winter scenes and colours make for some really nice photo opportunities. Here are a few I took on a recent early morning walk. It felt so good to get outside and spend a few hours in this lovely natural place.
