My first day in 2019: Greetings from a magical forest cloaked in mist. How did you spend the start of the year?

Hello 2019! Greetings from this mystical forest. All pictures in this post taken 1/1/2019. I spent the first of the year outdoors grounding in my beloved Nature... I needed it before resuming the new challenge of self-organization that I was talking about in my previous post. But first day of the year turned out pretty magical and I'm sharing glimpses of it through my photography. How did you spend it?

Finding what I’ve lost


As I wrote in my previous entry, I entered this 2019 full of resolutions, but one thing that was clear to me is that I wanted to spend the first day outdoors, grounding, healing and connecting with Nature. And so off @hedac and I went to look for an item we had lost just a few days prior when we were filming for a forthcoming video, not hoping to find it but enjoying to retrace our trail back. And It was found… which I consider a sign of good luck… Because that is precisely one of feelings I want to cherish… You may think you’ve lost something yet you might not.

In the Mist

Wandering and Wondering...


Into the alluring grey and white transient world you build in the mist

You know I love foggy days… I even wrote a song about it “In the Mist” that I shared a long time ago here. You can play it below and continue reading (as reminder)

So here I was the first day of the year hiking uphill and then all turned foggy and the woods looked as mystical as they could look. Just like an Other World of fantasy. These are some images of the first day of the year.

Wisps of mist shrouded the trees. Everything looks eerily romantic and ethereal. Air was crisp and damp

My clothes were soaked wet and It was very cold, there were moments my fingers went numb despite the gloves but nothing a comforting hot mug of hot tea couldn't fix. The year ahead is a blank page I want to fill with memories and experiences...

Let's make the best of it!

Come over, we have hot choco and mossy forests... Bring Opal lol
Hugs, Eon. Happy New Year to you and yours

So Mystical! Last week was really foggy in the early morning.... I've been walking the first days of the year and everything covered in frost. Thanks for a great way to start our year, dear enchanted one! Hugs and Happy New Year to Sir @hedac!


I love frost, it looks so magical. Best wishes back from us too, luuuuuv

Woow. Lindo post y preciosa canción.

Totalmente de acuerdo, no hay nada mejor que para unas manos congelada que un té bien calentito o un vaso glühwein (vino caliente) como hacemos nosotros desde que estamos por Alemania 😋 Espero que @hedac y tú no solo tengáis un año llenos de maravillosos momentos y experiencias si no también de deseos cumplidos. Un fuerte abrazo para dos y besitos a las ratitas! 🐁🐀🐁


Gracias bella y os mandamos un abrazo muy fuerte, esperamos volver a cruzar camino y con Juka, aww, no me gusta el vino pero sí el especiado caliente haha, nom. Feliz año besos a todos, y gracias por los buenos deseos 🍀🐀🐁🐀🐁🐀

Sigh. I don't even know what to say. Unbelievable visuals. Stunning work as usual.
I spent the 1st mostly indoors sadly, except when I had to go grab some gas tokens for my meter.

Wishing you the best this year.


I really needed it, to start afresh and face the week, plus we were shooting a new video in some ruins top of that hill and we had lost a key. We found it, incredibly so, two days later to the same place. What are the odds!!!

Happy New Year. Go out as much as possible, hug a tree on my behalf next time


I added a new one :)

Wow awesome photos! Those look like screens from some fantasy movies XD.
I hope you don't catch a cold for making these shots, yay for hot tea healing :D.      
I wish you a great year Pris ^_^.

What a subtle and beautiful way to start the year off, Priscilla <3 The misty forest gives such a calm and mysterious feeling and you capture that so wonderfully with your photos...

Love your witchy hat so much also * ___ * I can definitely feel the Earthy witchy vibes :D

So you got an early gift (here in Spain we give Xmas presents the 6th). Congratulations. Blessings to you and yours.

Hola @yidneth que buen trabajo fotográfico y tu musica es espectacular, maravillosa, haces un buen trabajo en cada post que presentas, he disfrutado mucho de este, gracias por compartir, una vez te prometí que te dibujaria en bolígrafos azules, visita mi blog para que tengas tu retrato, saludos amiga y te deseo muchos éxitos.

@yidneth, In my opinion you've spend your first day of 2019 amazingly and this piece is story telling and it is effectful too, in my opinion you should save this post as an memory because in my opinion through pictures and words i can say that this day will reborn that magical essence which you've experienced this day. Stay blessed. 🙂

Thank you, I loved to start the year out in the woods. Nature is home


Welcome and that's really true. Nature is real home. Have a blessed time ahead. 🙂

I really envy your surrounding! It’s just like fairy tale or from the Lord of the Ring!
My first day of the year was a bit frantic and quiet! Yap! I really need better self-organization and self-motivation this year! So much to pack and organize for a move out of the office! Life is always changing!

Hope you have a splendid time and successful New Year!

I wrote my resolutions in the previous post and self-organization is my number one goal... :)
Still I needed to hug some trees to start the year on the right foot :)
Best wishes for this new spin around the Sun


Thanks! I’ll have a look at that you.

Yes! Trees energy is very comforting! Perhaps I should hug my trees this weekend!

It was lovely, and very needed to face the rest of the week in more mundane environment :) I really feel the forest heals me

Wow, I love roaming through eerie forests like this one. Astonishing shots :)

WHAT A GREAT post!!! I love all the mystic images!
It really swooped me in and had me imagining using these images for a novel.
