That time again

It's happening outside. It's actually snowing. Which is something that I have really been dreading. Something happened inside me when I was in Montreal. The endless cascades of snow got me so winter depressed that I think I have developed an allergy towards it. I feel it hasn't been nearly enough time since that last snow shower in late April, and I'm not ready for it yet. Why can't it just be cold and beautiful without snow? Man oh man.
 A year ago I lived in Århus where this was the very cute view from my window. One point to snow, actually.
 Montreal in -20.
 My street when it was actually looking kind of managable. Somehow I didn't photograph the worse times. Maybe because I was fighting for my life in the snow masses.
 It was like this the four out of five months I was over there.
 I didn't capture the time when it was -38...

all of these pictures are fantastic! it's really hard for people to go through a winter, especially with summer in the past and future, but you just need to find the beauty in it rather than the darkness (although it does get dark)

to me it's a time of reflection, and getting in touch with myself again before i launch into the summer world freely! if you ever want to chat, let me know! :)

Becca: Thanks - it's not that I'm against winter, I just think I have been so extremely tired of snow from Montreal that I was naively hoping that it wouldn't happen this season :) I really like winter other than that, it's a nice season for reflection, as you say.
