Winter on the Southwell Trail - Part 26

Finally, I reached the end of the winter series with the spring equinox just a day away. I have really enjoyed the photography over the winter and some of the conditions have been spectacular.

When I started the series in Autumn series in September 2017, I had no idea that so much photography could be gained from a couple of miles of nature reserve. It has been a real photographic eye opener and I would encourage new photographer to find their equivalent of the Southwell Trail.

Picking a relatively small area and returning on a regular basis might seem photographically constraining at first but soon the compositions start to emerge, followed by some favourites, and then by variations including: different lighting; weather conditions; and seasons.

I can't think of a time when I have been more satisfied with my photography and, when I say this, I mean the process of photography rather than the output or end results. I will continue to enjoy the Southwell Trail photography into new season and judge all the results in the fullness of time.
