Not Letting Winter Get in the Way

Recently, BritMums ran a photography project, (via Twitter and Instagram), to get families outdoors and enjoying themselves even though it’s Winter time.

The challenge was to take a photo a day, adding the hashtag Hibernot. This is a great word, as the weather currently really can put even the hardened outdoor lovers off from venturing outside.

I loved sharing my photographs on Instagram, and it was really worth the effort and meeting the challenge to push ourselves to make the effort, and get outside every day. It also showed me that you really can enjoy the outdoors in all and any weather, to a greater or lesser extent.

It really isn’t hard work. We made sure that we were wrapped up warm, we had a good set of waterproofs and (of course) a flask full of hot soup to keep the cold at bay!


So, just because the Winter’s here, we shouldn’t hide away. Let’s try to embrace the challenge of Hibernot!

      Hi, thank you. I really enjoyed the #hibernot challenge. Even going to school we were thinking of ways of enjoying the outdoors.
      All my thermals and winter kit is being used but it has been a beautiful winter, I agree its hard not to snap away with lots of photographs when outside.

    Fun! I don’t hang out much on Instagram unfortunately but enjoyed seeing your photos on here. Getting out at least for a little bit every day does a lot for my well-being – I didn’t get out today and I’m feeling it.

      Thank you, I enjoyed taking photographs and saw how fun we had outdoors.
      I’m the same if I dont get outside for a few days, I do love the fresh air. It makes me feel so much better.
