Weekly Photo Challenge : Winter

I have missed out on the last couple of Weekly Photo Challenges, now it’s time to get back into the swing.   There are a lot of fabulous entries this week, with photos of snow and ice.  Here in the South of England all we have at the moment is rain.   This is fortunate  because when it does snow, we come to a grinding halt, daft really because we usually only get a couple of inches that are usually gone within a few days.

In the middle of December we had very heavy winds and high seas, an incredible winter storm.  This is always great for photographs, so one lunchtime I took my camera down to the sea front and found a fairly wind protected spot and tried my newly learned skills at capturing the rough sea.   The seagulls were having a marvellous time, souring above the waves on the thermals and were fascinating to watch.

These photographs are not brilliant, I didn’t get the lighting quite right and the camera speed was out so the seagulls are not very sharp.  I need to experiment further and there is a lot more to learn.  However, these shots of the sea in Winter are my contribution this weeks photo challenge.

Pop your coat on, turn your heating up and check out some of the really chilly winter photos on other blogs.

    1. What is not to love about an angry sea in winter and I love that your wonderful shots have captured such atmosphere. The next best to being there! Thank you and Happy New Year!


    2. I can feel the mood of those rough seas, and almost feel the spray! They are good shots.
      We are sweltering in 31C Down Under, it’s our summertime here; a bit different to your weather!
      Happy New Year to you and yours!


    3. Love the sombre greyness of the sea and it is so familiar to me too. Winter grey is a bit of a challenge but it has a softness about it that I love. Hooray, the light will come back soon. A very Happy New Year to you, here’s to a creative photographic 2012!


    4. Who wouldn’t have trouble getting fast moving objects in focus while shooting in manual focus mode? I think you captured the winter storm perfectly. Well done! I love it!


    5. I adore the photos you posted! I can almost feel the cold in the air and feel the water on my face – and yet, I am also wrapped up in a warm parka! Lovely!!


    6. Thank you for sharing the spectacular view of the sea in the south of England. I too can hear the commotion.
      Glad to know that you only get rain and light snow in the winter. We can use more rain here in Texas.
      Happy New Year!
