4 on Instagram

Every Saturday morning I go through my instagram feed for the week, this is no small endeavour! ¬†Here is a selection of 4 – I love the way they dress their photos and their lighting is exquisite, they make me smile ūüôā

SNOW!

If you know me, then you know I have a thing about snow.  I love it.  Actually, I love what is generally considered bad weather.

I also like to take photos. ¬†There are a great many photographers out there that I wish I had but a fraction of their talent, but there is one photographer who takes the photos I’d love to take!

Meet Christophe Jacrot:  Facebook, Twitter, Website

On his site he has them all grouped – How about:

Blizzard

Melting Greenland (a sad thought for such beautiful photographs)

Winter In Town

and most recently White Iceland the photo on this page that I love is The Orange Tunnel!

this is a sample of his fantastic work:

SantaClaus Рnot going to make it too big Рclick on the links behind them holds such beautiful visions!

This is the one thing that isn’t making me smile – he had an exhibition in Paris November-ish time and we just couldn’t get over. ¬†Hohum – I’ll just have to keep checking back just in case there’s another one.

A Lovely Picture

There’s something really nice and simple about this – one more photo you wish you’d taken yourself.

Snow!

We’re not getting snow here this year – it’s way too mild. ¬†Mind you it’s not very often that we do get snow so I shouldn’t be that surprised (still disappointed though). ¬†However, there is a very cold spell happening over in Europe and Russia. ¬†I know that snow has it’s draw backs and dangers but it is so beautiful. ¬†Below are 2 pages of wonderful snow photos (hopefully the url will remain live as time goes on)
