Walking in a Winter Wonderland: 7 Shots Celebrating the Canadian Winter
Looking to do some winter picture-taking? These spectacular shots of Canada’s snow-covered landscapes might be just the inspiration you need.
Grace Matthies of Coaldale, Alta., says, "The late evening sun hitting the trees after the fog and snow had painted everything white made for a beautiful photo."
Smile for the Birdie
Myriam Cyr of Saint-Andre, N.B. says, "This beautiful grey jay seemed to be just waiting to have his picture taken on this lovely, sunny day!"
The thick hoarfrost adds to the beauty of this great shot of a train going over the Fabyan Trestle Bridge, snapped by Erika Foley of Wainwright, Alta.
The Old Red Barn
Janice Storch King of High River, Alta., captured this image of the Munroe Barn at Sheppard Family Park, a historic park in southern Alberta that showcases early pioneer life.
Melissa Kustra of Kingston, Ont., writes, "I snapped this photo while my family and I were driving back from Kelowna, B.C. The snow ghosts—trees weighted by snow, bending and hovering over the landscape—lined the sides of the highway."
Skye and Monty
Norma Keith of Baltimore, Ont., snapped this pic of her dogs Skye (left) and Monty enjoying the winter wonderland. "Unfortunately, we lost our beloved Skye to cancer last spring, but this will be a lovely tribute to him," shares Norma.
Roger Lafontaine of Cornwall, Ont., says, "This little guy was enjoying a break at the bird feeder, while we were enjoying a hot-chocolate break. I was lucky enough to get a pose from our feathered friend as he readied to leave the feeder. I captured this shot in Carlsbad Springs near Ottawa, where cross-country skiing is a must!"
