Sister Winter

It has been so cold the past week, and the coming week it will remain cold. Temperatures below zero are sort of rare here, but I love it. I love the snow, the cold, the silent world, the crunchy footsteps. And I especially love sitting inside at the fireplace. I played a game of ‘Settlers of America’ this afternoon for the first time ever (and won, boo-yah!). Boardgames are such a nice (and rare) way to spend your winter-y Saturday afternoon.

So much for the weather, I finished my exams and began a new semester. I’ll be in Paris in 5 weeks or so, I’m looking forward to go back! I hope all is well with you guys, and excusez moi for sporadically blogging.

      It’s all about the shoes my friend, just the shoes. – No but seriously, wrap yourself in warmly and hear the sound of nothingness in the woods. It’s amazing.

    Wow, take me to where you are. it looks gorgeous there. I just went snowboarding on the mountain with my camera. When I develop my photos I hope they turn out as pretty as these do!

    Hey Louise! These are beautiful images. I always wait for your posts, they’re lovely!

    If you don’t mind me asking, what camera do you use? I’ve been wanting to buy a DSLR for ages, and I think I’ve saved up enough for one… Hopefully hahah.

      Aw thanks Mimi! I use a good old Canon eos 400d with (most of the time) a Canon 50mm f/1.8 II lens. But if I bought a new one, it’d definitely be one with video-recording!

    I really wanted to take pics of the snow but I was just too cold to even have an attempt, these are STUNNING! Captured the prettiness perfectly X

    Ohh, the snowfall looks truly incredible! <3 It looks even more beautiful against the sunrise! So so so amazing!

    i can’t say i enjoy cold weather, but the snow does look beautiful. and i love playing boardgames, they would be a great way to spend an afternoon when it’s too cold to go outside. :)

    Beautiful pictures :) And yes, board games are great way to spend your time! I love them! They’re so much fun!

    Your photographs are beautiful. It’s summer in Australia at the moment and I miss winter terribly so these are a lovely reminder of the weather that I look forward to in a few months (sans snow).

    oh Louise. these photographs are amazing. <3 the first one especially is so beautiful! i wish i could come live with you for one day in this winter wonderland. i have never touched snow before and seeing all these photographs makes me curious! but really, i could spend all day just looking at nothing but these photographs, they’re so lovely. :) xxx

    These photos are so, so stunning. Would love to have it snow occasionally down here in Melbourne – it’s so pretty! Completely envious that you’re going to Paris!

    Gorgeous photos! I love the shot of your boots in the snow. Bring on spring! I can’t take these cold temperatures much longer. xx

    These photos are absolutely gorgeous! You’re so lucky to have snow, it would be so much cooler if it snowed in Sydney every now and then.

    Those photos are AMAZING.
    You are so talented!

    These pictures are so lovely Louise! I have to say, experiencing snow for the first time was the weirdest thing, haha. I liked it when it was crunchy, but definitely not the slushy type. Also, yay for Paris!

    Wow those pictures are amazing.
