This post titled Seasonal Photography – Autumn to Winter Transition, has be en inspired by one of my favourite music lyrics from Jeff Wayne’s War or the Worlds, sung by Justin Hayward, and Richard Burton. I have always enjoyed the crossing of the seasons, sometimes both existing at the same time in nature. The season, even though (and maybe because) brings about a melancholy with it. Seeing nature explode with colours can be breathtakingly beautiful, but we know the contrasting change is just around the corner with a more barren and desolate landscape on the horizon.

Through autumn’s golden gown we used to kick our way
You always loved this time of year
Those fallen leaves lie undisturbed now

This small collection of images were all taken on my iPhone during early morning walks around rural North Hampshire, England. The weather has gone from being one of the mildest periods we’ve had into a cold snap with below average temperatures for early December 2022.

The early frost covered fields give a hint that the temperature was below 0 (-4c), clear skies during this, the blue hour, just before sunrise.

The cold mornings of this year transform the British countryside into a wonderland of frozen fields, frosted hills and snowy, twinkling forests. Wrap up warm and it can be one of the most rewarding and festive times of the year to be out taking those images in the early morning.

As the temperatures drop and the days shorten, the British countryside undergoes a magical transformation. The once green fields and rolling hills are now coated in a glistening layer of frost, creating a picturesque landscape that is truly breathtaking. Snowy forests become a wonderland, with the trees adorned in a sparkling coat of white.

A Rewarding Photographic Experience

Despite the cold, venturing out into the crisp morning air can be one of the most rewarding experiences of the year. The peacefulness is amplified by the stillness of the frozen landscape, giving a sense of calm and tranquility to take some images that is hard to find elsewhere.

Taking photos during this time of year is a must for any nature lover or photography enthusiast. The combination of the natural beauty and the festive atmosphere creates the perfect backdrop for capturing stunning images. The low sun creates a warm glow that bathes the countryside in a golden light, enhancing the already stunning scenery.

To truly enjoy these wonders, it’s important to wrap up warm. Thick coats, hats, scarves and gloves are all necessary to keep out the biting cold. But once you’re bundled up, you’re ready to explore and appreciate the beauty of the season.

In short, the cold mornings transform the British countryside into a magical set of images wonderland that is truly awe-inspiring. By embracing the cold and wrapping up warm, you can enjoy the festivities and capture some of the most stunning images of the year.

The end of the country lane presents a wonky road sign and a gorgeous view of the sun just beyond the hedgerow. A pair of minimalist photographs reflecting the clarity of the sky and a simple sign that directs me on my way.

A few hundred metres down the road and the scene changes dramatically once the sun rises above the tree line. A gate presents the opportunity to take in the scene. I stop a while and just observe these images.

Warmth is projected from the bright light but I feel none, it’s still below freezing and standing here, my feet are beginning to know it. Time to start the last leg of todays walk back into the town.

I’ll leave one more image from yesterdays walk along the Kennet and Avon canal (last winter, snow on the Kennet and Avon canal), still freezing but overcast. A reminder that not all mornings are glorious in colour, but keep walking, you never know…

The summer sun is fading as the year grows old,
And darker days are drawing near,
The winter winds will be much colder,
