Winter Wanderings ♥

Winter is upon us, with her bitterly cold days, winds which burn your face and those odd spots of wonderful sunshine which make everything feel lovely again. This year is the first year that I've really struggled with the cold. The tips of my fingers are always numb and I'm never fully warm - even when sitting in front of a roaring fire.

I'm trying not to let this deter me from getting out and about with my boys, although it does take me an age to not feel frozen anymore once we retreat back inside. The fresh air is worth it all though.

This little blog has turned into a seasonal photography project - not on purpose at all though. I think the overall lack of time for me to post on here regularly coupled with my passion for snapping pictures has just made it this way.

I have to admit though, I absolutely love that it's turned out like this.

These past few days I've gone on some winter wanderings with my littles, taking the opportunity to capture the essence of a winter in Ireland on camera - the cold grey days, the dampness everywhere, the undressed trees, raindrops obscuring the camera lens and those odd spots of sunshine filtering down through the clouds.

We have a long winter ahead of us before those gorgeous sunny daffodils and dainty little snowdrops start peeking up again, so I'm sure I'll be capturing even more wintry scenes in the coming weeks.

For now though, here are my captures from this weeks winter wanderings - cold, grey and wet, yet also sunny, clear skies and mildness, a display of a typical Irish winter and it's ever-changing weather.

  7. Though you don't post on here often I think most of us still enjoy your photography on your Instagram page. Winter in Ireland looks magical albeit it cold.
