Winter Landscapes

Winter can be a beautiful time of year to take photographs.

Growing up with four seasons makes me appreciate each one.

My favourite time for taking photographs this time of year is just after a freshly fallen snow. It's just perfect when it's not too cold and sun is out. It's a beautiful sight. The snow covered trees against the bright blue sky is always perfect.

I love it when the sun peaks through the trees. It gives it an ethereal look.

You have to be camera ready when there's freshly fallen snow. It doesn't usually last very long. The snow falls off the branches very quickly.

When I see the fallen snow outside, I grab my camera and go for a drive around the neighbourhood. If I'm not able to drive anywhere (maybe my driveway needs shovelling), I take a walk outside and see what's around me.

You'd be surprised at what you might find just outside your doorstep.

I took this photo of the trees across the street from my house. I photo shopped out the fire hydrant. The trees have been cut down since this photo was taken.

Fallen snow on heritage buildings is very beautiful. Icicles hanging off the edges and smoke coming out of the chimney against a bright sky just makes it all perfect.

Farms are wonderful to photograph this time of year. The wood against the snow gives the photograph a rustic look.

Taking a trip to the lake or any body of water is worth while. The frozen lake is very picturesque. This one works well as a black and white photograph.

I was in a parking lot and found this maple leaf buried beneath the ice. I thought it looked so cool. The ice had these neat cracks in it.

Most of the time I have my camera with me because you just never know what might catch your eye.
