Photo of the month January 2014 – Backlit family on beach

One, two, three, five…  counting the steps down to the beach.  Then splashing stones into the sea and running from the waves – all in woolly hats. Such lovely memories of our winter beach trip come back when I see my favourite family photo from January.

The best thing about it getting dark so early in winter is that you can see a sunset and even a sunrise with very little effort, and in between hours of gorgeous light on the lucky days that the sun is out! I just love playing with light and backlighting in camera, it can make a picture glow.
