With Halloween and Bonfire Night having come and gone, autumn will soon be turning to winter.
While I love the warm sunny weather of the summer there’s nothing as invigorating as a walk in the autumn sunshine when the air is crisp and clear or a walk in the snow, wrapped up in your winter woolies with cheery red cheeks and looking forward to a cup of hot chocolate
(possibly with a dash of whisky and topped with whipped cream).
It’s a wonderful time of year to photograph too and I’m looking forward to capturing
the changes in the seasons this year.
A couple of years ago we had so much snow that they closed the roads in and out of my home town of Bognor Regis on the south coast of England and we all had to take the day off work. I rounded up a few friends and ventured out for a walk. Although it was very cold the town looked beautiful under a white blanket of snow.
The autumn leaves were still on the trees.
I was born here and I can’t ever remember getting this much snow before.
In fact, Bognor regularly gets more sunshine than anywhere else along the south coast but the deckchair boys weren’t going to make any money that day!
When we couldn’t stand the cold any longer we headed for the pub for brunch
– a full English breakfast with ALL the trimmings.

I never travel without insurance. If something unexpected goes wrong the costs implications are just too high to take the risk. World Nomads provides travel insurance to travellers from over 130 countries. They're the perfect choice for long term travellers or single trip insurance.
