Standing on a tiny silent snowy island gazing out across frozen Baltic Sea ice awaiting the arrival of a small ferry for my return to Helsinki seemed to illustrate something about the sensation of winter. The sea links the two images, from the deep blacks of its depths, to the whites of its surfaces, and a winter chill spreads across the joined landscapes.
The two pictures also illustrate the isolation that winter can bring. Places empty of people as they hide from the chill allowing the snow and ice to take over. From the vibrant blues and golden yellows of summer to the darkness of shadows and glaring whites of winter, these images, photographed in different countries at different times, marry together to convey an overall sense of the winter world.
