I think winter is probably the best season photographically everything is much more dramatic.  The weather much more exciting storms frost rain even snow.

The good light lasts longer in the day and you don’t have to rise at 4 am and stay out till 10pm to get sunrise and sunset. Even the overcast skies offer opportunity with forest and water so much better with the softer light.Mahuia Rapids

David Ward a UK based photographer makes the point that there is no such thing as bad light we just need to match our subject matter to the light. I think this is true what we often lack is the ability to see the possibilities .  These shots are from one of my favourite locations Tongariro National Park taken last winter.

The light was predominately overcast on this trip but still there were opportunity’s and many more I missed .
