Looking back over the photographic year, I decided my album was a little thin compared to previous years, so I organised an impromptu photo walk with some colleagues.
With just a few short days before work breaks up for the holidays, four of us lugged our tripods and camera bags around Cardiff to capture the dazzling Christmas lights. A cold, northerly wind followed us around, sneaking through gaps in winter clothing and encouraging the goosebumps.
Christmas markets, shopping arcades, fairgrounds and ice rinks twinkled with colour and heaved with last minute shoppers and merry makers. We weren’t short of subjects.
I took one camera body, my Canon EOS 5D MKIII, and one lens, a Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L series.
