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.

    number 19 (Av Clara Lidström) and 52 (Unknown) were taken on the same street, from the same point of view, with the same snowflakes falling… I’d bet 52 is original and 19 photoshopped :)

    #1 e_anka is right. 52 by Unknown is just flipped horizontally & changed a little bit. I think it shouldn’t be on the list ;-)

    4, 6 and 18 aren’t ‘special’ enough in my opinion. All the others make want to ride sleighs, drink hot choco and take long walks through open snowy countrysides :-)

    As always, very nice collection. But don’t you guys think it’s time to find another word other than ‘Beautiful’? No? Just going to keep using that word for every post? Ok, thats cool… way to be.

    I have said this before…
    Most color pictures just seem to punch you in the face with a contrast festival.
    Black and white are much better.
    Question: Is contrast becoming a standard to make pictures stand out ?

    “Founded in September 2006, Smashing Magazine delivers useful and innovative information for designers and Web developers”

    How exactly are photos useful and innovative information for web designers? I appreciate a good photo as much as anyone else, but I have actual photography sites I visit when I want to look at those.

    Maybe Smashing should open up SmashingPhotographs.com. Top 50 photos alongside jQuery scripting just doesn’t make sense.

    Amazing photos, an inspiration to dig out the DSLR. Not as many IR photos as I thought there would be.

    Did you never heard of inspiration or using bits for illustration?

    Diversity is key! Keep up the good work!
