The Many Faces of Winter – Cold and Snowy Winter Photos

These snowy winter photos show the majesty of the cold months. For me, winter is a time of reflection. I think back on the year that has passed and ahead to the one which is yet to come. 

As the days get shorter and so much colder, I hunker down and do things that I neglected over the summer when all I did was want to spend my time outdoors, mainly in my garden.

It’s just so nice to look out and see all the snow on the ground when winter comes around. Grab a cup of hot chocolate to stay warm, and enjoy the winter photos below!

Snowflakes falling are such a relaxing sight. I even used this image to make a snowflake calm down jar recently that is a bit hit with readers of my blog.

Even the groundhog gets in on the action on February 2, by predicting the arrival of spring, or more months of winter. This happens in Gobbler’s Knob for Groundhog Day.

Winter scenery photos

Winter has so many faces. I was born in Maine, so I am used to deep snow drifts and a coating of white over everything. But here in the south, it’s a rare treat for me to have snow.  

My family sometimes envies my warmer winter temperatures, but don’t realize how homesick I feel when I wake up one morning to a covering of the thick white coating.

To remind you (and me!) just how lovely the world looks with a blanket of snow, I’ve put together a round up of some beautiful winter scenes for a little design inspiration as you prepare your homes for the upcoming holidays.

Snow on a winter fence invokes a fresh and somber mood. The simplicity of this snow covered fence really appeals to me.

Beautiful winter scene through a clear ball. Makes the term snow globe so much more accurate!

Frozen clothes pins covered in ice. I wonder how long it has been since they held clothing?

This scene reminds me of so many skiing trips that I took to Sugarloaf Mountain with my family. Nostalgia personified!
