Walking in a Winter Wonderland – 30 Images of Winter Photography to Motivate You


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!

  • Good Citizen

    Can you explain better what the problem is here? Is someone putting links to your articles elsewhere on other websites or are they putting comments here with links going elsewhere?
    I am not doing either but it would make is easier for people to keep within your expectations. Your concerns are not clear to me.

  • Sorry the offending comment has now been deleted – someone keeps posting a link to the same web site over and over again on every article we published. That adds no value to the discussion and is just blatant self promotion. That is not the way to gain fans

    I’m pretty pleased with this picture on a drabby snowy day.

  • Wow! The icicles on the lighthouse are just incredible.

    I spotted this girl while driving around taking landscape
    pictures. She thought she was hidden by the bush. Then she realized that she
    wasn’t and started to run. I got a series of 11 pictures. If you would like to
    see them all go to my photography page. If you like the pictures please like
