I generally don’t like winter. The cold air of the outside, the dry and staticky air of the inside, sweaters, jackets, boots… you name it. Yet I like pictures of winter. I like seeing the fairly-tale-like combination of the fresh white snow and the orange-yellow lights of cafes and streetlamps. It just looks full of magic.
I spent my most recent winters in St Petersburg, Russia and so here is my representation of the beauty that is St Petersburg in the winter.
