Since it’s the first day of December today, I thought it’ll be fitting to post a Christmas scene, taken just last night in the thriving city of Newmarket. I hope I can keep up with these wintry scenes though – it’s not a joke to be out there in the bitter cold, and I can’t stress that enough.
Newmarket is one of those secondary cities that’s much less glamorized than London for example, but that definitely is not an excuse to not visit. I actually favor shooting these lesser-known and lesser-visited places because I have more of a palette to work from. You don’t see a lot of photographs of them in the web, and sometimes that’s a good thing. Winter is also my favorite time of the year to shoot, oddly enough. The skies are pure and cleaner and I get better blues at twilight. But it’s also the most challenging time to be out there and it takes more out of you to get motivated. I just have to remind myself to keep my eyes on the ball all the time.
