Winter in the Pyrénées

Pyrénées 5.jpg

Kevin Meynier showcases his love for the true beauty of winter through the stunning landscapes of the Pyrénées.

The purity of winter carries with her an infinite possibility of landscapes, but I only took my first true winter photos last year in the Pyrénées. I strongly feel that this glacial era is somehow a part of myself, an extension of my personality. I moved slower through the landscape, allowing me to capture the fragments of motionless time by the ice. I like the restless weather report winter brings with it. The wind appears suddenly, catching the snow like drifting feathers in the sky, the clouds dancing a ballet over my head. I feel more strongly for this season than I do for any other; it is an ethereal love and devotion I have reserved for this time of year only. I am planning to continue travelling amongst the mountains, as well as journeying through the Scandinavian winter. I find peace in the season of winter; a calm and stillness that is missing elsewhere.
