More on Winter Wonderland Photography

Walker’s Cabin

Since we are on the topic of winter wonderland photography I thought I would add one more twist to the topic. Winter wonderland pictures are especially nice at twilight. Of course, almost anything is especially nice at twilight but with lots of snow on the ground and every where else twilight is a great time to photograph winter scenes. If you can find an old cabin or a lit Christmas tree or both (!) it is great. It is dark enough outside that the lights will be on be there will still be enough light for the details of the landscape to be recognizable. Remember, twilight is 30-40 minutes before sunrise and after sunset. Outside that time period it is too dark outside and the landscape will be just a big black blob.

    I love winter photographs, especially those taken during twilight. When the snow creates blankets on top of everything, I am reminded of many past memories. I will have to remember that tip next time I try to capture a good photo during this period.
