The Frozen North


Living in this mild climate I find myself longing once again for real cold and wind whipped winters (oh nice aliteration). I have always love cold and snow and the only part of school I remember liking was visiting Anja or cold autumn afternoons and taking walks through the crispy countryside.

I love the quality or autumn/winter light and the smell thats carried on the wind. I have recently taken to longing for the irish countryside but also (I have my whole life) wanting to go further north.

Norway, Iceland, Newfound land....


Did you ever see The Shipping News? Although the book delivered a better story line the imagery used in the film had a profound affect on me. I feel a connection with these cold isolated places, but how can one miss a place they have never been?

So heres some icey style I admire...

White and glowing interiors

These pictures make the cold look so inviting! I have never seen snow in real life so I haven't experienced a proper winter but I do feel that cold weather really makes me moody and sad. I guess because here in Australia there's no snow to look forward too - only wind and rain :(
