Last naked hike of the year, this 26th of December. 4h30 of nudity out of the 5 hours of hiking in the Chartreuse massif in France.

I like hiking, running, kayaking, biking, sailing, geocaching...naked of course!

Beautiful photo, the first one one. I see you are dressed for winter, with your boots...

No sign of snow in England yet, but I am finishing the year with early morning swims in the sea.
Tread lightly upon the earth!

Agreed, that first picture is gorgeous, Jacques. And I imagine quite difficult to make, with snow on the ground with sunshine on it, and yourself backlit, plus the distant valleys and sky to be properly shown too. Nice.

these modern auto cameras are pretty good :)

the snow will reflect a lot of light onto the backlit body.

Never thought of that. Not much snow to work with here. ::) I like the way that the beautiful haze covers Grenoble below and makes it feel more remote.

What a splendid way to spend Christmas, jmf, (or the day after at least!).  Away from the tawdry commerciality, the TV and the overeating. Just clean crisp air, fresh white snow and warm sunshine atop a spectacular mountain.  You just don't get that in the UK!!!  Grey, damp, chill and no sun - that's our Christmas portion.  No wonder we eat and drink too much over the holidays.  Now where's that box of chocolates?


I note John P calls you Jacques.  Is it ok to do that for the rest of us? :)

Cold here.  About 20F, -5C.    Dec. 28, 2018.
I wanted to get 4 season pictures of my lilac bushes.  Otherwise its too cold to be out naked.

Aw, the only reason you're cold is because you aren't wearing shoes. The hat is good, though.

Of course. JM is for Jacques Marie, abbreviated as Jacques by friends.

Thanks, Jacques!  Jmf is ok but it's nice to have a proper name to relate to - particularly after all these years!


Bob!  Different hat than usual!  Waydago! Your winter coat perhaps :D  Well done for sending us a little crisp snowy greeting.  What are you pointing at?  More lilac?  The lighting suggests a grey sky and damp air but I agree with Blue Train, some protection of the soles from the snow increases endurance time in cold weather and snow a lot...but I guess you know that already! :D :D

I've a definite yearning to get out there "au naturale". Alas, the temperature with wind chill on the morning of New Year's Eve was a chilly -43 (-45F). Sunrise at 9:15 am, sets at 5:02 pm.

I. Am. Losing. My. Freaking. Mind.
I feel my best when naked in the world, especially in wide, open spaces, wherever and whenever possible.

Minus 40 is cold enough to freeze your skin.  Best stay inside or wear thick furs.   Where was that?

Southern Saskatchewan. Ya don't even want to know about the North.

On the bright side, right now it's +4 (39F). The temperature variations here are ridiculous. One city nearby hit 42 (108F) in August...then, on the last day of summer, it snowed. I've shoveled walks in September, yet lazed on the beach in October. I can tell you I prefer the latter!

Nightwalker, you are living in an area that I would call "challenging" for a naturist.

At the Midwinter Gathering a few years ago (in Florida) I met a lady in the hot tub, who proudly said that she comes from the northernmost town in Ontario which has year-round road access. It sounds pretty challenging there too.

I admire anyone who carries on with the life-style in challenging environments. Sometimes we think is challenging here in the UK but we are lucky having no real extremes of heat or cold. Anything over 25 deg C or below about 4 deg C and the press go into a frenzy.

How ever we must live in challenging circumstances here in Brum. Half an inch of snow and everything grinds to a halt, schools close, bins don't get empties and the media go berserk with stories of woe! (Meanwhile we naturists go outside and do naked snow angels)
