Capturing the details :: Winter


  I love cultivating and living a creative and wholesome life through the seasons. As part of my winter manifesto I wanted to capture the details of winter, and for me this has meant getting outside and braving the cold weather. Over the past few months I've spent time reconnecting with my love of photography and plants. Photography is a way for me to be creative, to notice the details of the season, and to capture the moment. I love trying to see things from a different angle or perspective and sometimes use these prompts from nature to think more creatively.

The seasons for me act like signposts, giving a hint to how to we can be living during the season. This winter has been about resting when I can, and taking the time to hibernate. There have been frosty mornings, golden light, morning dew clinging to plants, blue skies and empty branches, and a gentle palette of winter tones.

We are on the cusp of a seasonal change into spring. Warmer days are becoming more frequent, daffodils are growing and are ready to flower, and snowdrops and purple crocus starting to make an appearance in our garden. But before the shift happens I wanted to share with you some of the images I have been capturing this winter season that I love...
