I’m quite obsessed with this for now, also because it’s somewhat fitting for the hauntingly beautiful yet ostentatiously festive winter month of December. Not to mention it seems to be a very suitable accompaniment to the frosty pictures I’ve included below.
So I’ve finally started working on the countless number of pictures I took whilst I was living in the UK, and it’s practically a colossal, incredibly significant, and absolutely celebration-worthy achievement in and of itself, as I’ve unedited pictures dated quite atrociously back to —— believe it or not —— three entire years ago.

I’d love to call these series of snow-coated pictures Snowscapes, a wintry spin-off from my usual Travelscapes album. It’d be lovely to compile and give all of the pictures I took during the blistering winters their own identity, in a sense. Wrapping it up —— here’s to progress, and many, many more snow-topped pictures to come.
