A Colorful Tea Party
The winter months are great from a photographic perspective because the low sun provides an almost-golden hour throughout much of the day. The angle of the sun also yields lighting that can't occur any other time of the year, such as this technically backlit scene of the Mad Tea Party. The overhead foliage give a bit of filter, but the fact the sun is shining in the direction of the camera rather than away from it lends the composition a nice glow, and to get the Matterhorn in the background, I have to be facing south. All of this only comes together during the winter months, and the vibrant atmosphere is enhanced as a result.
