Whenever I get a chance to visit my sister Vera in her forest home, I make sure to pack my camera and go for a walk.

The forest is magical any season really, but I especially love it after a snowfall.

This tiny cabin nestled into the trees is a favourite spot for me. My nephew built it for his little siblings and it’s always used as an imaginary school house or some sort of pioneer movie production, complete with Laura Ingals costumes.

And of course I have to go visit the horses; Ginger and Hawk.
