Winter is all about light and contrast. Winter sunlight is always changing, being weak in November but stronger by February. The sun tends to be lower throughout the day providing good light.

Sunlight sparkling on snow or frost…

sunlight (noun) = light from the sun.

I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
