The long low light at this time of year is a photographers dream.
Add in that the tree's are bare, those long beams of golden light can penetrate deep into the woodlands, casting shadows that go on forever.
However the day did not start out that way, grey clouds covered the sky but with the promise of snow in the forecast I didn't mind.
The snow never came but the grey remained and made it a struggle to find images. It wasn't until later when we were exploring a new trail that the grey gave way as the low sun made an appearance.
This weeks choice as 'photo of the week' was a quick grab shot as we walked the new trail as the sunlight strengthened.
It may not be my best nor was it carefully considered but it does reflect the feeling as I looked through the winter tree's and saw the clouds breaking up on this fine morning.
