When I headed out, the sun had yet to poke its head above the horizon so for a time I travelled in quiet darkness. But what a breathtaking sight unfolded as the minutes slipped by. Fortunately, I was heading east so could take in the rising sun in all its splendour. After days of grey and snow, this morning's sky was dawning as clear as a cool mountain stream.
What promise I saw heading to my appointment became a reality as I left the doctor's office, walking into a crisp, clean winter's day, the biting frigidity eased by a glowingly cheerful sun against an azure sky. Along the return trip I was entranced by the sparkling fields and pristine landscape. It was picture perfect.
For a girl who's been known to slip on to the back of a snowmobile to get some winter landscape photos, the only thought was "Wish I had my camera."
A bright sunny day in winter can give you some beautiful pictures, but it does take a little know how. Here are some helpful pointers:
