. . . . . . . . . .

i love to go walking right before a big snowstorm. some of the photos you see above were taken just before the blizzard started in earnest on boxing day. the woods were silent, aside from the rush of the wind and rustle of trees. it was so cold, but it felt good to be outside after a lazy day full of eating on christmas. back at home, we watched the snow fall through the night, piling up in drifts around the house. there’s nothing better than a big snowstorm.

today, i’m inspired by josh murfitt’s film photographs. and i can’t stop thinking about this beautiful margaret howell sweater (it’s on sale on the website but sadly still out of my budget. damn it).

have a good day, i’ll see you tomorrow.

    yes, there is a beautiful stillness before a snowstorm… the world seems to wait with hushed breath while the birds scurry about searching for food… lovely images here!

    These have a real feeling of Connecticut-iness after all the British ones lately.

    Oh these are too beautiful, I especially love the photo of the tree leaning across the path. I would really like to walk underneath it.

    my faves are definitely the ones of the trees – esp. the one w/the branch across the path! As much as I abhor driving in the snow, my favorite time is after the snowstorms. that hush of the snow covering everything is the greatest! Keep up the great pictures! :-)

    The last few photo with the trees and snow are gorgeous. I really feel a stillness about them. And I’m enjoying looking through Josh Murfit’s photos, thanks for pointing us in his direction!

    Love that shot of the log pile!

    These are beautiful Brian–the interiors cozy, the landscapes so wintry and cold. Your pre-blizzard walk sounds idyllic (and looks that way too). The sense of stillness in the last photos here is an almost palpable force.

    These are great

    i am running out of vocabulary to describe how your photos affect me.

    The photo of the protruding branch is truly magical… Damn, I miss North America…

    Such beautiful shots. I second Sophie – the photo with the low branch is spectacular!

    absolutely beautiful! It just started snowing here in Tokyo for the first time since I’ve been living here, but sadly not for long. I hope as the sun goes down it will start to snow again!
    Love Sandwich
