My Sunday Photo... Woodland Walk

The light seems to play such a huge part in our lives at this time of the year. 
Whether it's the lack of it light with the shorter days or that when it does shine it hangs so low in the sky, casting it's long shadows. 
We have had incredible sunrises, which we can witness without having to set the alarm clocks to an unearthly hour... and the sunsets have been spectacular. 
It's an incredible time for photographers to get out and enjoy.

This photo was snapped whilst walking my dog in the local woods. 
The forest floor is completely covered with leaves, which seem to cushion each footstep... like walking on a sprung floor. 
The colours are spectacular especially in the beautiful sunlight.
I'm linking up with Photalife once again.

I've still got lots to workout here with this new website and it's really pushing my technical abilities to the limit, but hopefully I'll get there.
It's a good mental workout for sure.
Thank you for your patience and I hope you'll come back again soon.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone
 

Cutest Critter... My Sunday Photo

It appears that winter has arrived.
The temperature today hasn't risen above 4 degrees celsius... so obviously I haven't been out for a photo shoot. Instead I chose to embrace the new craze of 'Hygge' and stayed cosy and warm next to the fire.
For those of you that might not have heard the word 'hygge' before, it's the Danish lifestyle craze... it's the word of the year apparently.
(a little like Feng Shui that became so popular a few years ago).
In essence, hygge means creating a nice, warm atmosphere with fires, candlelight, cosy blankets and not forgetting eating and drinking comfort food with friends and family.
So for my Sunday photo this week, I delved into my huge collection of photographs and came across this little chap.
He's one of my favourites and used to be a regular visitor to our patio when we were staying in Canada a few years ago.
Cute critter isn't he?
I'm linking up as usual with Photalife link.
Have a cosy weekend and I hopefully will see you again soon.
