February is often thought to be the bleakest month of winter, the last throes of poor weather before the onset of spring. Not so this year. After a mild and fairly damp winter we have been treated to a beautiful week or so of sunny weather that produced the most amazing sunsets over the Bristol Channel. These photos are of that week and are taken mainly at Uphill where the River Axe estuary meets the channel. Alongside these are photos taken at the National Trust property of Tyntesfield House near Bristol. WE have been treated to some gorgeous colours that were vibrant and deep culminating on the magical display at the end of the days.
