Wildlife photography’s power rests on the belief that it represents an event that occurred naturally in the wild, something witnessed and recorded by the photographer with their camera at that given time.

The Winter Solstice occurs in December and in the Northern Hemisphere the date marks the 24-hour period with the fewest daylight hours of the year, which is why it is known as the shortest day and longest night.
With the seasons now becoming colder and the sun lower in the sky, it’s the time of year that will offer you a softer, more angled light. Which can present the photographer with endless opportunities for dramatic images of wildlife.
