Create a Fireside Retreat A roaring fire draws visitors to its light and warmth. Create a spot in your yard or on a patio to place a fire pit loaded with wood to invite holiday guests outside if the weather permits. Surround your fire pit with chairs draped with warm wool throws and prepare a camp-style s’mores fest for dessert. Learn how to build a stone fire pit on DIYNetwork.com Embrace Color Unless you live in a community where all your fences and gates must be painted white, pull out your brushes and get to work. Paint your fences for a bright pop of color against the graying winter light and landscape. In the spring, your emerging plants in their soft, pale greens will stand out against these colorful hardscape elements. Photo courtesy of Walpole Woodworkers Add Interest With Cool-Weather Blooms Camellias and hellebores are staples of winter gardens. Searching for their colorful nodding blooms nestled among their tough, evergreen leaves gives you something to look forward to. Plant several kinds so you’ll have plenty of different colors on hand to brighten up the inside of your home.

Make sure your fixtures are appropriate to the style of your home. Position landscape lighting to focus on interesting trees or charming paths leading to your front door. Design by Bob Hursthouse From: Bob Hursthouse Plant Winter Shrubs Red cornus and hollies add striking interest against the graying winter landscape. Be sure to clip branches for a festive pop of red in your holiday decor. Upgrade Your Exterior Doors Give your doors a jolt of color for an inviting exterior that enhances a hospitable charm during the cool-weather months. Choose cheery red for a festive vibe, dark blue for a classic look, or sunny chartreuse for a modern, updated twist.

In reality, the change of the seasons from winter to summer is one of the best direct indications of the earth’s cosmic movement that we can personally experience. Winter occurs in the Northern hemisphere when the Earth’s northern axis tilts away from the sun. The minute change in distance from and angle to the sun creates the drop in general temperature that we experience in the winter, and this angle is also the reason why it’s colder the farther up north you go. As the seasons change, you can imagine our beautiful planet slowly rocking back and forth on its axis. Although some may hate the cold, don’t forget that the winter is a necessary part of our life cycles – these winter landscapes will soon be full of life. Most plants and animals have adapted to the change of seasons in one way or another, and the cold grip of winter allows plants and animals to hibernate or migrate. Some tree seeds, like acorns, will only germinate after they’ve spent the winter on the cold ground. So here’s to making the most of a cold and unforgiving but enchantingly beautiful season!

As a tribute to these hardy men and women, we bring you 50 beautiful winter wonderland pictures. 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.

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.
