    About this time of the year, us northerners can get more than a bit tired of winter. Cabin-Fever, Seasonal Affective Disorder, our only skin color from windburn. What-have-you and call it what you will.

    BUT! Winter is also an amazing time of year for photos. Capturing images of winter can be a great motivator to get out, laugh-off the cold, and look to see what a marvel winter also is.

    So here's the thread to show those winter pics, I'll start out with a few from the X-E1 with 18-55mm:

    Trestle and River (you'd have to be wet or in a canoe to get this shot in summer):

    I can't, 'cause I don't. But I enjoy the photos of those who do. It's as close to winter as I like to get.

    Thanks! I'm glad I was able to make something a bit neat to look at out of the jumble that was that site. :)

    Here's a few more from today. We're getting our snow storm here. Not as bad as out east but enough to keep us busy with shovels, and the most and heaviest still to come. :eek:

    Today wasn't much about color, it was more about contrasts toward drama.

    Great shots everyone. Warm shots of a chilling theme.
    Here are mine. Not as much snow here.
    All shot with X10.

    This is probably the last of winter 2013 for me. Last weekend at Long Lake Park in Arden Hills, Minnesota.

    Could see this thread going dormant for a while now. Or, perhaps the southern hemisphere shooters might start getting their winter shots soon ... :D
