I won’t lie, it’s really cold here. Even for a northern girl like me who’s used to winter, it’s cold. I may have all the adapted clothing and outerwear I need, I’m still shivering when going outside. We had a first icy blast late December, then last week, we had hopes of spring. Warm sunlight, birds chirping. Today’s it’s back to reality, another blast of Arctic air hits us. I’m not one to complain usually, but I’m really dreaming of spring at the moment. I’m stuck inside and although it helps with my healthy resolutions, I have time for cooking, juicing and exercising, I’m longing to be out there shooting. I have briefly picked up my camera to capture the cold, my fingers would freeze after a couple of seconds, my battery drained and my face burned. It has nothing fairy tale like, it’s not a Disney movie.
Well, at least I’m still keeping up with my photo projects. The 100 Days of Happy one comes easy for me, I find sources of happiness everywhere, and it’s such a feel good project! I really hope weather stops acting up so I can get to more serious and portfolio worthy work, I have a long list of written ideas to complete… Meanwhile I guess I’ll stick to yoga, breathe in, breathe out, and wait for winter to pass…
Here’s some images of the cold white winter and a couple of extras from my photo projects thrown in 🙂
Also, I ordered fake polaroid prints made from my Instagram photos from Polargram, I love them!! Affordable, fast and beautiful!! Those are some of the little things that make me happy!

For what it’s worth, WOW, to me, these images are serious and portfolio worthy. You mentioned how cold you were, but the photographs leave me feeling warm and inspired. I find it funny that you ordered “polar” grams, during an arctic blasts. 😉 They turned out fabulous. Stay warm up there!
so so beautiful … i love these, i can’t lie i am a little jealous! & i really really need to order some more instagram prints for my wall. Gorgeous. xx
I am soooo with you on winter and spring (plus summer), I cannot wait. But… winter can make for some really pretty pictures, as long as you and your camera survive the cold 😉 Those polaroid-instagram prints really look very pretty.
Oh Isabelle I am SO with you about the cold! Although don’t think I’ve ever experienced cold like that…worst for me was about -20c in Tallinn when I was pregnant! But it does make for stunning photos so good on you for getting out there, I hope you agree it was worth it! x
I love love love your snow images – just beautiful, they evoke the crunch of snow under boots, the silence brought by a blanket of snow, chilly fingers, woolly hats and my jack russell springing through deep drifts. We haven’t had any snow here this year yet and its rare that we have it very deep or very cold (and never like you have it). I love the polargrams – must look into getting some of those, they look adorable!
I LOVE your winter snowscapes – quite literally, breath taking. Enjoy your period of hibernation – it’s important to take the time to breath slowly – before life gets busy again. Thank you for reminding me to do this too….. x
Also you have cute toes. 🙂
Isabelle, your images are lovely as always! The wintry wonderland displayed in your images are fabulous. The Polaroids of your images are my absolute favorite.
