Winter’s Blanket Series © Sean Hayes

Snow is good for two things: causing havoc and reflecting light. Shooting photographs in the snow has its own technical challenges but it can also result in some very interesting images. Like a vast reflector, snow can bounce available light around a picture in odd and interesting ways . It also provides very simple, graphic backgrounds if you play around with composition and cropping. I shot these images in the Belgian coastal city of Ostend in 2010. The fact that there was deep snow drifts on the beach at the time, added to the ‘other worldliness’ of the scene. Hope you like the series of images I shot that day – and should you like one of the images enough to want a pristine print on your wall, please write to me at and we’ll chat about print sizes, prices and shipping arrangements. Thank you for your visit.
