Playing The Long Game: Outdoor Photography With Telezooms

Winter + Mountains + Textures = Epic Landscape Photography

If you're looking for some winter photography inspiration, take a look at these landscape photos that sum up winter perfectly.

Nature is full of beautiful patterns and intricate drawings executed with an almost graphical precision. Most of these astounding carvings can be seen at their best from above, which, in turn, requires us to either find an aircraft of some type or to seek the service of drones. Alternatively, we have to hike through snow to reach the heights needed to capture such breathtaking imagery. If this sounds like hard work, don't worry; have put a fabulous collection of images together that unveil the might and glory of snow-clad mother Earth so you can enjoy the view without leaving your living room.


Winter + Mountains + Textures = Epic Landscape Photography: Mountain  

Now, this photo is not to be confused with the topography of Middle Earth. However, everyone who hears the distant echoes of violins, conducted by Howard Shore, shall be pardoned, since the invigorating view really evokes magical thinking.

This is an example of visual antagonism (the shaded lower portion and the bright upper part) and it’s the obvious diagonal fraction seen in this photo that makes it stand out. Looking like something the members of “Sturm and Drang” would have taken if DSLRs existed in the 1770’s, it’s another winter landscape photo that shows the majestic brutality of weather.

This shot is a brilliant monochromatic example of photo minimalism. It's a real fine art photography jewel, that features stark contrast and once again cuts the whole composition in half, emphasising the razor sharp outline of the terrain. There’s a dreadful emptiness that’s somehow still very appealing in this photo - brilliant!

The muteness, the distant fogbound forest line and the uncoated surface of the water make for a truly FARGO-worthy scene. A perfect photo to contemplate to, it offers a tastefully subdued bluish hue and an aesthetic that evokes allusions to the watercolour works by William Turner.

There’s more to it than just mountains. An aerial photo like this is typically what one encounters as the plane reaches its touchdown phase. A vast woodland gradually emerging through the clouds, unchanged and still as it has been for hundreds if not thousands of years! Plus, there's an additional delight - the beautiful luster of the sun, illuminating the treetops on the right!


Winter + Mountains + Textures = Epic Landscape Photography:


And now, compiling the best of four words (mountains, forest, texture, winter) into one image, we have a really magical photo featuring a turquoise blue lake and a lonely island. If this image doesn't inspire you to pick up your camera, we don't know what will.

Subjectively speaking, we think this is the most empowering snap from the selection. It’s a photo that erases the horizon (at least metaphorically) and shows the thousand-year-old landforms piercing the immense sea of clouds. It's a magnificent photo of the magnificent place we inhabit.


We hope you enjoyed the walk through these winter photos with If this has given you the inspiration to go out and capture your own seasonal shots, don't forget you can decorate your room in the wonder of winter with the help of  A large-format canvas print of mountain terrain will certainly have the 'wow' factor and get the attention of anyone who visits your home.
