50 Beautiful Winter Wonderland Photos

Advertisement

As winter approaches in the northern hemisphere and the nights draw in, our thoughts turn to the beauty of ice and snow. Winter photography, especially in the colder parts of the world, is a specialized niche. Photographers have to take care of their cameras and guard against frostbite and hypothermia. They often venture into remote wilderness searching for the perfect winter landscape. Their reward is stunning imagery.

As a tribute to these hardy men and women, we bring you 50 beautiful winter wonderland photos. We included both colorful photos (especially the colors of sunrise and sunset bring out the beauty of the winter landscape) and black-and-white photos (they bring out the contrast in tones between snow and the landscape). We’ve linked the photographers’ names to their portfolios or websites, so that you can explore their work. We’ve also listed some informative articles about cold-weather photography at the bottom of the post.

    Great list, Andrew. I have a feeling you’re not responsible for image #29…which is one of the four ‘sample’ images that comes with the Windows XP operating system. You could always change the credits for that one from ‘Unknown’ to ‘Capt. Gates and the Winter Force’…. :-)

    “what’s wrong with using photoshop? is part of digital photography, get over it, people.”
    ***************
    Nothing wrong with using Photoshop, Mona…if you’re tweaking an original image. But taking someone else’s image and passing it off as your own is lame. But, I reckon you liked the cartoony “HDR” images also. More lameness.

    The one by “Eleanor Rigby” isn’t winter — it’s infrared. It just looks like snow because the vegetation is white (reflects infrared light).
