You will notice there are fewer trips in the heat of Summer and the Depths of Winter and lots in Autumn and Spring. This is for several reasons. Firstly, the light is better for photography as the sun angle gets lower in the sky as well as the best times of the day for light (early morning and late afternoon) are not so early and late. Secondly, the severe weather can occur in Summer and Winter, making it very uncomfortable for photography or having to cancel it.
