Blue Skies, Frost, a Robin and an Adder

The Isle of Purbeck takes some beating when the skies are clear and frost covers the ground. The paths become easier to walk as the mud freezes, at least for a little while, and the cold air feels good to breath. Walking the coast path is a must for me whatever the weather but on these cold, clear days our cliffs seem to shine.

Along the cliffs Jackdaws and Pigeons joined the gulls and Guillemots but it was a very friendly, and extremely vocal, Robin that won the best looking bird award.

On an outcrop, above the long closed path to an old quarry, was a single Adder taking in the warmth of the winter Sun.

About Julian Sawyer

It is easy these days to spend hours processing shots on a computer, removing twigs or imperfections, changing colours to make the shot more pleasing or even adding something that may be missing, but I do not do that. Nature, by its very design, is perfectly imperfect and that is how I want my photographs to be. Sometimes the light is not quite right, sometimes the animal will not pose in the way I want or decides to stay hidden, that is the beauty of wildlife photography and I find it frustratingly magical.
