I enjoy chasing the light with my camera. In fact it’s best on late autumn or winter days when the sun is much lower in the sky. Moreover these photographs were taken as the first rays of light appeared in the garden. Before the little heat there is at this time of year had time to melt the frosted seedheads and leaves. As a result I hope the following photos will inspire you to get into the garden with your own camera!
A light chaser came into the garden one frosty November morning just as the plants were frozen in time. She waited and observed how the light worked its magic by leaving sparkles all over the autumn flowering plants. She chased the light as it moved around the garden and she let ‘nature paint a picture‘ just for you…

Just beautiful! Each shot was a delight.
Rosie, as usual wonderful pictures. The lighting is perfect. :)) I'm sure your garden must be beautiful if your pictures are anything to go by.
Beautiful shots…just love them! You're so lucky to have such picturesque frosts…we rarely get any here 🙁

Spectacular! You were so thoughtful in your chosen muses to photograph. These autumn mornings have such an ethereal quality to them.
Each photo is worthy of a painting. Nature is the greatest artist!
These are just lovely photos Rosie! I love this goodbye to fall.
beautiful photos! my fav is the first one
Beautiful. Who would have ever thought there would be so much beauty even when the garden is in decline.
Hi Rosie: Seeing all your beautiful and wonderful photos make me want to become a better photographer. So guess I will be adding it to my list of things to do.
I really enjoy your blogs and photography. Have a wonderful day,
Beautiful frosty images, Rosie. They do look artistically 'painted'.
There you go again Rosie, whenever i look at your shots they make me want to stop photoshooting to rest completely! I know you know what i mean, it is just envy, and not being able to duplicate any of them. Sigh!
So much poetry is there in those shots!
There is a magical quality to the autumn morning light and you've captured it beautifully.
Beautiful gorgeous photos…thankyou!
Gorgeous photos!! I'm envious of your photography abilities!
There is a good reason or two for not cutting back all the old perennial flower heads. One is for wildlife and the other is to photograph then in the autumn light. A wonderful series of shots, Rosie.
Those are fabulous macro shots Rosie. They provide a lovely glimpse into your winter garden.
