Winter Holidays and Photography Projects

January 18, 2018

Hello Everyone! I hope that 2018 is treating you well so far. It's certainly been a whirlwind here and January is flying by. Sometimes the Christmas break feels like it was months ago rather than just weeks!

Nathanael and I spent Christmas with my family in the Kootenays and we got enough snow in one week to last us until next year, haha. But seriously, it was wonderful to catch up with family and take a break in what we call our snow globe of solitude. Admittedly, this was more of a cozy hot chocolate winter trip rather than a winter sports one, but we still got out in the snow. There's nothing like walking through (or photographing) fresh snowfall!

At the end of our trip in the Kootenays, we unexpectedly squeezed in one extra trip in 2017, when after hours of bus delays getting into Kelowna and crossing our fingers we would make it to the airport in time, our flight home was cancelled due to heavy snow. The next flight out was two days away, but the silver lining was that we were able to connect with Nathanael's uncle and aunt who live in Kelowna. Ironically, the next morning brought clear blue skies! Eventually we made it back to Victoria, just in time to ring in 2018!

Since the beginning of the year, I've been working through my archives. The grey and brown winter landscapes around me at the moment are uninspiring, so this seems like the ideal time to edit down my existing collections. In cleaning up my archives, I've found a few handfuls of additional images which are perfect for my stock photography portfolio at Alamy! Of course, many of these remind me of past travels and adventures, such as our mini roadtrip to Innsbruck, and also inspire new ideas. So here's to new adventures and the colourful spring landscapes ahead!
