The Off-Season

This video beautifully captures why I love visiting tourist destinations in their off-season.  Even if you can't go on holiday right now, it's possible to capture quiet, serene moments like this where you live simply by changing your daily routine.  You might try leaving the house an hour earlier, taking a detour by walking down a different street or path, or walking around at twilight to see something familiar in a whole new light.
