Winter can be a beautiful time of the year to take photos!
The sun at this time of year is lower on the horizon so afternoons can provide some wonderful golden colours.If the weather is clear there is a crispness to the light that brings with it a certain magic.
It can be a fun time of year to head on outside to take advantage of this and spend some time with your children. Whilst typically Australian trees don’t loose their leaves in the Autumn like Northern Hemisphere countries, there were still plenty of introduced trees planted many years ago by early settlers that provide us with some delightful colours and changes in scenery to enjoy.
As I have travelled around to some of the locations here in Gippsland I have been amazed at just how many great places there are to take photos with children and families.
I took a bit of a gamble a couple of weeks ago with my location suggestion for a young mother and son….I always scout a location before I make the suggestion to have photos there, but I sometimes wonder what goes through the client’s mind when they arrive at some of the destinations I choose…this one, for some reason, fasciated me with it’s line of trees that had definitely decided to embrace the idea of winter and drop ALL of it’s leaves!
There was something about their silvery branches that created an unusual pattern in the background that I loved and then there were all those leaves to play in. Oh what fun!!
So if somedays seem like they may not be warm enough to get outside and take some photos, think again and be adventurous….there is beauty to be found , especially when you mix in the simplicity of playing in nature.
