13 Snowy Winter Landscapes on Film

Ahhh March… usually we should be anticipating the first signs of spring. Unfortunately many of you are dealing with repeated snow and ice storms, while over here in Europe we are enjoying our 9th straight week of rain [cries to self].

As much as we hate being cold, there is one thing we do love about the season that feels like it will never end — and that is the beauty of snow combined with the soft blue light of winter. So if we must freeze, let us at least enjoy these 13 gorgeous snowy landscapes shot on film! (Click through for full-res images and complete photographer info.)

15 Things I Love

A hailstorm started as I was about to go for my walk, so I guess I have time to make a list! Tagged by the amazing wednesdayshambles, for which thanks. These are all things I love that aren’t people.

15. The fact that a jellyfish exists which is basically immortal (turritopsis dohrnii, or the Immortal Jellyfish) and can defend itself by rejuvenating. Gives hope for the rest of us.

14. Hot chocolate with whipped cream. Strawberries with whipped cream. Anything with whipped cream. Although, trust me on this one, do NOT get it on your sheets. Or in your hair.

13. Reading something so amazing that you’re blown away by it. Something so brilliant that it’s too good, that you want to physically ingest it.

12. Discovering a new favourite song and imagining that the magical intro will never make you skip it, never drive you insane, hitting repeat 500 times.

11. Cats. The cats that greet me on the street, the cats that I’ve lost and the ones that found me and let me make a home for them. Cats are not aloof, people. They love back.

10. Candles burning at that time you can feel the edges of the day world flare as it slips across into night.

9. Watching old interviews with Brian Molko in French. Ville Valo in Finnish. Mat Devine in English. Watching tour diaries by lots of different bands. Basically, I like hearing singers talk.

8. Taking trips alone. Even setting off at the airport makes me feel more self-sufficient. Landing at night, finding the place I’m staying on darkened streets. Making the strange familiar.

7. Stationery. Empty postcards, old or new, pencils with just the right balance of soft and hard, lined notebooks. My two favourite stationery shops have shut, and I mourn them.

6. Dreaming a profound conversation with someone you’re not likely to ever meet, but feeling when you wake up as if you have, and you’ve discovered a new self as well.

5. Unearthing things I’ve written long ago and finding out they’re not half bad.

4. The fact that Lady Gaga’s version of ‘My Favourite Things’ has been in my head the entire time I’ve been writing this list.

3. Sexy new story ideas. Made more tantalising by invariably presenting themselves when I’m in the middle of something that needs finishing.

2. Rounding off a beautiful story. That moment when it’s still perfect, unblemished, a magical landscape. Colours seem brighter. No one has yet noted the spelling error on page 4.

1. Taking in the view over water of the nature reserve from the woods an hour’s walk from my house. It changes every day, and is one of the few places in the world not augmented by music.

If you got this far, check these people out! Lovely writers all: 

dovesdanceatdawn, shentoncarrington, taedhg, krakle, braveheartswhisper, polkadottedsmile, wulfriek, spiderdiamond, aubriestar, frofc, smist999, 30secfantasy, thegirlshewas7, writingwillows, labellenocturnebete

If tagged, naturally, only write a list if you want to!

10 Reasons you should watch Kingsman:

1. Colin Firth.
2. Jack Davenport (though why they used Jack Davenport for only 3 minutes of this epic movie is beyond me)
3. Roxy is a kickass heroine who is barely sexualized if at all.
4. Is an action movie that doesn’t fall back on a secondary romantic story line. Like, Eggsy doesn’t even go after Roxy.
5. Epic fight scenes that are shot so beautifully it makes the film nerd in me cry with happiness.
6. Amputee villain uses prosthetic legs as a weapon.
7. The most artistic execution of exploding heads known to cinema.
8. Gentlemen assassins.
9. Samuel L. Jackson with a lisp.
10. You get to hear Colin Firth say “I’m a Catholic whore, currently enjoying congress out of wedlock with my black Jewish boyfriend who works at a military abortion clinic. Hail Satan, and have a lovely afternoon madam” to a woman in a church hate group.

Music Titles game

I was tagged by braveheartswhisper

Using only song names from 1 artist , cleverly answer these questions. Pass it on to 15 people. Try not to repeat a song title . It’s a lot harder than you think!

Are you male or female ?: Underneath it All

Describe yourself : Somewhat Damaged

How do you feel?: Every Day is Exactly the Same

Describe where you currently live: Another Version of the Truth

If you could go anywhere , where would you go?: Closer

Your favorite form of transportation : March of the Pigs

Your best friend is : Sin

You and your best friends are : At the Heart of it All

Favorite time of day : Right Where it Belongs

If your life was a tv show what would the title be : The Day the World Went Away

What is life to you: The Eater of Dreams

Describe your relationship : Wish

Your fear: The Persistence of Loss

That was fun, thanks Dee!

The text messages I am too afraid to send.

1. Hello.
2. How are you?
3. I am not fine
I’m sinking,
Too far into missing you
4. I ate like three burritos today.
5. What do you eat
When you are with him?
What do you say
When he’s had a bad day?
Does he feel better,
Knowing your arms are enough
To make a house a home?
6. I am so afraid
Of seeing you with him
Sometimes I don’t get out of bed
Incase I cross paths
With your happiness.
7. I am glad you are happy,
I am
I promise.
8. I think I hate him.
9. I don’t hate him
I envy him,
Because he didn’t throw you away
In the biggest mistake
Of his early onset midlife crisis.
10. My heart hurts
With every flutter
Of the butterflies you feel
When you see him
Now I’m full of moths
Batting their wings against my ribcage
To remind me
I wound my cocoon too tight
To let you in.
11. I want to tell you
About my day,
Tell you what I’m afraid of
You offered your arms
To carry me through my pain
And god knows
My shoulders are weak
From the weight of me.
12. The bed is empty without you.
13. My sheets miss your skin
My pillows miss your hair
The nape of my neck
Misses your breath
I’m making a postcard
Out of this bed
“Wish you were here.”
14. If I was bold
I would flat out ask
You to come back
But that’s not me
Instead I tell the world
All the things I should be saying
To you
Maybe these words will find you
Like wooden signposts
Directing you here
And if they do
I’ll be waiting on the other end
Of this gratuitous treasure trail
I’m no prize
But you make me golden.
15. I love you.
