Hi everybody !
I have new photos to share with you from an afternoon spent a few weeks ago looking for some wintry images to capture.
It was a gloomy, snowy afternoon, the light was faint and almost everything seemed to have a greyish tint, from the clouds to the ground. I was walking down a route where there are few houses, and at some point there aren’t any. From time to time, cars were passing by. I wanted to photograph a barn I am especially fond of, since I didn’t have a photo of it in winter. While walking further down the route I realized how quiet this route was, there was no one to be seen, no houses nearby, and I felt a sudden loneliness.
It also felt as if I were immersed in a muffled environment where the few sounds I was hearing seemed to be echoing from far away. Loneliness and solitude were the predominent feelings I had on this gloomy afternoon, but with them also came a sense of peace and serenity.
The sun had set when I headed back home. On my way I saw two deers who looked surprised to see me walking down this route where, usually, few people walk.
Solitude, in the heart of winter.
My favourite barn
Recently I’ve made a new friend who shares the same passion for photography. It is so much better and so much more fun to go on a photographic excursion with a friend than to go alone. We’re planning many more excursions in the coming months where I hope to capture the beautiful sceneries of Beauce and, of course, barns, which are one of my favourite subjects to photograph.
I’m wishing you all a nice week, and by the time I’m ready for another post, maybe I will have heard the first cheering notes of the song sparrow. Spring is almost here !
