We’ll admit the middle of winter might not seem the most logical time to start talking sunlight but bear with us for a moment. By the time you’ve seen the collection below, we’re fairly confident you won’t mind. In actual fact, a cold winter’s fog can offer the most dramatic and compelling sight of the sun’s rays, so seasonal doubt aside, it’s a great time to be exploring the idea. There’s science to be found in the how and why of a sunbeam; everything from dust, water particles and droplets to far too many attempts to repeatedly type crepuscular rays, but for now we’ll stick to what we do best and show you the astonishing results. It might take patience, hefty metering, a bunch of early starts and a fair amount of luck, but when sunlight scatters through the landscape, the visual effects can be sublime. Need a little more convincing? Take a look.
