The drawing I published on Christmas Eve turned out to be prophetic; I had counted on company on my walk before hitting the Christmas buffet, but at eleven everyone was still sleeping, showering or making breakfast. Well, I was waiting for no one, I had a date with the sun! We see precious little of it this time of year, and you know you are hungry for light when you get excited and take photo after photo of things reflecting direct sunlight; like tree trunks or house fronts.
I was out for about two hours, and so was the sun. The temperature was about minus three, which was perfect for photographing, but I would have brought a sketchkit if I had known I´d be all by myself!
