Shirley's Bay in December

Some friends and I returned to Shirley’s Bay in early December before much snow had fallen. It was quite a contrast to my earlier visit, and offered different opportunities for photographs. CLICK HERE to see some of my photos from this trip.

Without leaves, the structure of the trees was much more visible, and I took advantage of that on several shots. There was also a thin layer of ice wherever there were pools of still water, which presented opportunities for other shots. It is almost always worth paying repeat visits to a location, to see it in different seasons, different time of day, and different weather conditions. As you get familiar with a location, you also get a chance to explore beyond the obvious locations and obvious angles. It was a very worthwhile outing.
