One of the most difficult times of the year for me to take images is in the winter. When I leave for work in the morning it's dark, when I get home ditto; so the chances of spontaneous image creation are few and far between.
Yet winter can provide some of the most fantastic and surreal light and colour. The sunset at that time of year can have a beautiful orange–yellow glow, coupled with some very stormy clouds can give very dramatic images.
Not to mention the possibility of snow or frost which can paint a wonderful landscape, so don't sit indoors! brave that inclement weather winter has more to offer than you think!
