First Rays on a Frosty Morning by BettinaSchwarz

First Rays on a Frosty Morning by 

I love my walks in the woods … and I do come past this particular spot fairly frequently … never does the light seem quite right for a shot with character and personality …. you know the kind of shot I mean – one that “says” something!! Well, until this particular morning of course!! Imagine my delight and wonder at the display before my eyes!

Epping Forest, Essex, UK

Canon EOS 450D 18-55mm kit lens

I’m in love with life and have found photography to be a richly rewarding medium within which to capture precious and fleeting moments and feelings. Because I know from first hand experience that time is fleeting and moments pass, I make the most of every situation and open myself to the richness of every experience. I hope that this is expressed in the images I create and share :) Visit me at
