2013 Challenge, Week 4: Winter

Trevor, Jeremy and Gary got us all going to a great start for the first 3 themes of the 2013 Photo Challenge! Now that the northern hemisphere is well settled into the winter months, I thought it would be a great time to throw in “WINTER”, as the theme for Week 4!

Some of us are enduring extreme cold winter weather and more snow than one can shovel! Others are basting in the sun on some heavenly beach! No matter where you are, share with us some of that winter magic and show us what winter looks like in your part of the world! I don’t want to exclude our friends in the southern hemisphere, so don’t be shy and show us what were missing.

“Montreal Winter Storm! Over 40 cm of snow, wind gusts up to 60 km/h”  by Jocelyne Feizo

You can document the impact of extreme winter weather on the people around you! The above image was taken last December in a record breaking storm that hit the North East and most of Eastern Canada!

“Winter Fishing on Lake McDonald”  by GlacierNPS

Winter landscapes offer magical views of your winter wonderland! Mountains, forests and rivers all give us a unique perspective to photograph in winter!

“Horse-drawn sleigh ride”  by Steve Troletti

Winter festivals and carnivals offer a fantastic opportunity to capture a unique blend of family activities that are sure to capture the eye! This Horse-drawn sleigh ride is a great example!

“Snowmobiling in New Brunswick”  by New Brunswick Tourism

There’s plenty going on in winter that just doesn’t happen the rest of the year! Motorized Winter activities can range from snowmobiles to 4-wheel ATVs zooming around on snow-packed trails!

This should be a great theme to get out and have some fun with! Alone or with family and friends, winter offers us an infinite amount of possibilities to express ourselves as photographers.

About Steve Troletti

I'm a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy. Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments. Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.
