2011 - My second year of blogging in Brittany

I felt I would like to share some of the photographs I have taken so far this year and some from other years. I live in a beautiful part of Brittany and just love being here. It's a lovely place to photograph and enjoy being in through all the seasons and hopefully this blog will show you where I live my life.

Friday, 29 January 2010 - Snow in the village

Earlier this month we had 40+ centimetres of snow in the village. This is very unusual for Brittany and we were unable to leave the village for ten days. During this enforced seige I decided to take photographs of the beautiful white landscape.

Luckily the freezers were full and being a hoarder I always have plenty of storecupboard food, so I was never going to starve. 

These huge icicles on a neighbour's house are up to 45cm long. 

This was ice on my window, the patterns and light changing
 all the time as it melted and slipped.

Winter Light


  1. All so wonderful. Winter does have some hidden beauty, sometimes we just need to adjust our attitude to see it. We are gettting a heavy storm right now and although it is so pretty, my back hurts from shoveling.

  2. Your photos of the deep snow are so peaceful and beautiful. I like how the shovel and the pup in the picture above illustrate just how deep the snow is. I really like the shapes and light in your ice on the window.

  3. Beautiful views of the village and the snow. Interesting vshot of the light in the ice. Good luck with the contest:)

  4. Nice eye for a photo. I like the closeup detail.

  5. This is really interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger.
