The beauty of the winter sun is that it gives mostly a gentle light throughout the day. Unlike in the summer, when the light gets only less bright during the late afternoons and early evenings.
On my visits in the gardens and parks of Marseille, it is this light that catches my attention. You could call it shadow play but I see it as sun play, sunlight creating backlit images.
It hasn’t been a real winter here, yet. No frost, no snow, but a pleasant mildly cold weather accompanied with this lovely winter sun. The roses have been blossoming for weeks because of this soft nourishing light.
And, the Mimosa tree blossoms during February and March. Originally they come from Australia, thriving wonderfully in this mild climate of the French Riviera.
