It is very simple really, winter is the time to see the bones of the landscape. Shape and form simplify, the way the hill tucks into its self, how the woods run along the ridge, blurring edges. Sometimes the gift is even greater, the world goes black and white! (almost!) The usual colours are leached from the landscape leaving a very limited pallet and highlighting some very unexpected splashes of colour.
Back at home, in the warm, long evenings, good things on TV provide yet another oppertunity...snoozing models!
