winter sunshine

Just under two weeks until the shortest day and the sun is low in the sky making some very long shadows.

Photographers call the hour after sunrise and the hour before sunset the "golden hours" and yesterday that seemed to be particularly true as everything seemed to take on a golden glow.

Some of the oak trees have lost all their leaves while others seem to have a few still clinging on.

The sunlight lit up the dried bracken at the base of this hedge.

It was a good afternoon to be out taking photographs

as the sun slowly moved towards the horizon.

OOh I like that last one especially. I was just remarking today how dark it is at 430!
