Right now I’m in a phase where I’m trying to leave the past behind and start a new chapter, and part of that work is deleting a lot of stuff in my computer, archiving old WIPs I will probably not finish, and sorting (getting lost in) blog pictures from the past year. And looking through my folder, I found that with a little distance, I enjoy some pictures more than others – and not the ones I would have thought at the time I took them.
So as we await spring here in the north of Sweden, and also drawing near to April, which was when I bought my camera last year, I thought I’d celebrate/mark my new chapter by reposting the photos I love best. They may not be anyone else’s favourites, but this is an entirely self-indulgent post, so I don’t care, haha!
First out is me in the forest, where I belong, with the sun just barely filtering through. That golden green light… *sigh*
Next is me by a nearby lake, backlit and calm like I almost never am. 🙂
My very first experimentation with light and water. It’s a love that endures.
Quintessential summer photo, and all the more precious now that it’s just a memory.
Just grass and sunlight, but beautifully fragile.
Spider’s threads among blueberry bushes, caught in setting sun.
More backlit stuff. 🙂
Just around the corner is all you ever dreamed of.
Dawn filtering through every single pine needle.
Seeds let loose on the wind like babies learning to walk.
Frog and leaf.
The warmth of the sun on a forest path.
Beard lichen at dawn.
Dandelion with half melted frost on top.
More grass in sunlight.
Happy accidents in cloud form.
Northern lights over the same water.
Death, played by me. I’m really pleased with the colour palette.
Another me in another forest and another season. This reflects the feeling exactly.
Sod silver linings – I want them to be gold.
The pastel-iness of a warm winter.
The joy of capturing movement and spraying snow.
Golden hour extraordinaire.
And, of course, my avatar. 🙂 Who knew yours truly could look cool?
