Photography blossoms in Poland, which has one of Europe’s most genuine claims for a country with four seasons in its year.
From the gorgeous springtime floral blossoming in some of the villages in Kociewie to the summers on the beaches of the Baltic Coast. From sublime autumnal walks through forests of falling leaves, to the cold winter chills where snow falls nonchalantly, filling pretty town squares with a white colour or ensuring the Polish mountains are right for skiers.
This changing of the seasons is perfect for up-and-coming photographers to capture and share the beauty of Poland with the world via their lenses.
