I haven’t posted much photography to the blog recently, but this scene seemed very fitting as I wanted to wish all my readers a very happy Christmas and healthy, prosperous 2020. British readers will probably have gathered already, that’s Trafalgar Square in London.

Trafalgar Square, Trafalgar Square London, Trafalgar Square Christmas Tree
Trafalgar Square in London on a rainy, December evening. Wishing you all a very happy Christmas.

As you probably know, the Christmas tree in the middle is a gift from Norway. A tree has been donated each year since 1947 as a sign of gratitude for the UK’s support of Norway in WWII.

As with all the best photographs, I wasn’t planning to take an image like this at all. in fact I was slightly disappointed to turn up at Trafalgar Square to discover the spot I had wanted to take my images from had been given over to a Christmas market! I had t re-think things totally.

At first I also thought the weather would be a hindrance. I then spotted the reflections on the rain-soaked paving stones and knew it would make a good long-exposure image.

You can probably see a few raindrops ended up on the lens. It’s not ideal but I was told they made the image more authentic.

Enough about the photograph! Whatever you are doing this Christmas, I wish you all the very best. Whether you are going big or keeping it small, I hope you have a wonderful time and I wish you a healthy, prosperous 2020.

I’ll have some new content on the blog in a couple of days. In the meantime I will be taking it easy with my family and doing all I possibly can to encourage the kids to get their thank you letters written quickly (wish me luck on that one). I hope you get some down time as well and whatever you get up to, don’t forget to get outside!
