Winter can be as beautiful as it is cold. The temperatures that chill you to the bone, may make you want to stay snuggly and warm in front of your fire. And who can blame you?
Unless you’re a photographer …
Winter landscapes are the complete opposite of the summer, more so here in Fethiye where summer landscapes are brilliant azure with a vibrant contrast of colours. In the winter months, the quality of the light changes and can be striking and dramatic or soft and luminous. The sun is lower so there are no harsh areas of contrast that have to be compensated for in summer photography. And the days are shorter making it much easier to capture both sunrise and sunset.
Have a look at our gallery of Fethiye’s incredible winter landscapes taken by local photographers.
They have managed to capture the most beautiful and powerful quality of photography – the simple rule: first, light.
