A play in the stark, minimal colours, heavy fog, lack of enough amount of light;
not to forget, mist and moisture are enemies to the camera and lenses.
Winters are the most truly ideal and the drub times for photographers who love nature and landscape.
It takes an adventurous eye to feel the best in the very little offered by the environment; to take up the challenge, to climb, walk or slid through to reach your spot and frame the masterpeice from the most accurate perspective.
When it comes to timing and understanding of luminosity, It takes a tact of not just understanding the movement of the natural source of light, Sun/Moon.

A penultimate number of good takes of the same landscape along with a dash of alertness and patience pays a long way in getting closer to perfection.
For most professionals, at most times, it gets even down to praying to the gods of climate and light together in hope to get conditions suitable to work.
But, as snowflakes fill the atmosphere and bring in warmth,
shooting with so many challenges sends inwards a feeling of satisfaction.
Its like “purple haze” for the clicker as well as the appreciator.
We listed some of our favorite pictures that define winter in its most exigent ways.
