If you live in the norther hemisphere like I do you may have been buried by the white stuff already. Here in Alberta we’ve had almost as much snow in the last 30 days as we did all last winter, and it’s still coming! Yesterday Mother Nature decided to play games with us and rain, giving us skating ponds for roads and sidewalks. Thanks!!
But, this season can also make for some stunning winter scenes, if you can motivate yourself to get out of your nice warm house and go do some photography. The light is great this time of year because of the low angle on the horizon, so take advantage of it! Get up early and photograph the hoarfrost, if it occurs in your neck of the woods, it makes for breathtaking images that make our southern counterparts want to come visit!
For you southern hemisphere dwellers, enjoy these image, and do come visit us up north any time you have a desire to photograph in the snow!
