Enjoyable Snowy Walks


There is surely nothing better than a winter’s walk on a clear day, with snow on the ground. The low sun creates an excellent light which even an amateur photographer can make look good, the walking is easy on the hard ground (as long as the snow is not too thick) and a cosy pub is definitely a great way to finish.

Enjoy the photography on some of my favourite winter walks. For further winter photos and details of each walk click on the photo.
