A couple of days before the winter solstice, the sun is low in the sky all day long but the captivating beauty of the Studland Peninsular and the Isle of Purbeck never fades.
Rich caramel colours of bracken and water pools mix with the golden creams of dune grass, silver birch trees, dark green conifers and faded pink heather – now a carpet of white.
Sitting on high stools in the National Trust Café we looked out towards Old Harry Rocks across the bay. The sea was calm and the beach almost deserted…
A perfect time of year to reflect.
