Winter is officially over. It's felt as though it's dragged on for longer than usual (perhaps because we had snow just last weekend!) but as the days get longer, and colour slowly returns to the landscape, the wonderful sense of hope and optimism synonymous with spring grows day by day.
Looking back over the last few months, this winter actually felt like winter should with a healthy number of frosty mornings and at least 4 significant snowy periods. The mild, gloomy weather that we've become accustomed to throughout December, January and February in recent years was definitely not what this winter was about. I think I took as many snow pictures this winter as I have in my entire 10 years as a landscape photographer.
With spring upon us, here are some of my winter highlights
