Pictures of Snow

Updated on August 20, 2014

Enjoy Winter's Beauty with Pictures of Snow

Although winter is often known for it's harsh conditions, it's also a time of immense beauty. With the snow, frost, and ice, all of creation is transformed, light is altered, and a stillness that's unknown the rest of the year can settle in. You can enjoy this experience any time of year however, with pictures of snow for your walls.

All photographs are available on

(Introduction photo by active metabolite is not for sale.)

This fog enshrouded scene is one of the magical pictures of snow taken around Diamond Peak in the Lake Tahoe area (Utah, USA). It shows the trees blanketed heavily with snow; branches bending under the weight. The photographer is Phil Schermeister.

Photographer Anthony E. Cook captured this snow covered scene with sun beams piercing the fog and dense forest growth. The exact location is not known.

Clouds laden with snow loom over this mountain landscape with a light snow already on the ground lighting the scene brightly. David Cayless is the photographer.

Photographer Taylor S. Kennedy has shot many pictures of snow including this one from the Black Forest, showing a small ice covered stream and surround vegetation.

This snow covered landscape, photographed by Sisse Brimberg, is near Odense, a city in Denmark. Odense is also the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen.

The focal point of this photograph is a frost covered Black Oak in the foreground. This scene was captured by photographer Marc Moritsch.

The setting for many striking pictures of snow, Yosemite National Park is the location for this image as well. It shows a snow covered clearing with majestic Half Dome in the background. This photograph was captured by David Welling.

This winter picture shows a view of small creek wandering through the countryside after a snowfall. Snow laden trees are reflected in the water. It's a wonderful example of how snow can brighten even the darkest days of heavy cloud cover and envelope the world in stillness. The photographer is unknown.

Photographer Bobby Model caught the fog hovering over a partially frozen pond in a winter time wetlands scene.

This winter picture features a look at the sun illuminating the snow covered banks of the River Tay in Aberfeldy, Perthshire, Scotland. Kathy Collins is the photographer.

A popular site for many snow pictures, Wasatch Mountain Range in Utah (USA) is the location of this scene. A glorious sunlit day on a snow capped mountain was captured by photographer Kyle Krause.

A small, welcoming chapel awaits the viewer, providing a respite from the winter cold. Photographer Jeff Foote captured this sight.

A warm respite from winters chill, this photograph shows a snug cabin in Lost Lake British Columbia (Canada) tucked in between snow laden, towering conifers.

In this winter picture, young evergreens get a shower of sunshine through the forest canopy.

This desolate scene is in Cartwright, North Dakota, USA. Straw bales litter the otherwise barren winter landscape. Chuck Haney is the photographer.

A winding path through an enchanting winter scene is presented by Lawrence Worcester in this photograph taken in Hampstead Heath, London, England.

This photograph shows a nearly snow covered Skaran Creek. This image was captured by photographer Anders Blomquist in Sodersen National Park in Skane, Sweden.

Here is a glimpse of Glacier National Park in Montana, USA in mid-winter. David Boyer is the photographer.

From upon a peak above, viewers can scan part of the expanse of Bryce Canyon and distant formations in a winter coat of snow. This photograph was taken by Nancy Rotenberg in Utah, USA.

A natural daylight picture of snow encrusted evergreens provides a look at the winter wonderland created by a recent storm.

A snow covered footbridge passes over the Merced River and on into the woods in this peaceful scene. Marc Moritsch is the photographer.

This photograph by Mike Robinson was taken near Anchorage, Alaska, USA. It shows a typical snow covered landscape with unusual lighting.

This winter picture shows a train plowing through deep snow in the heart of the San Juan Mountains. Photographer Paul Chesley captured this image.

White Mountain National Forest is shown here completely blanketed in deep snow. Deep blue sky and unobstructed sunshine make this a dazzling winter scene. Photographers Jerry and Marcy Monkman provided this shot.

Frost and snow covered trees line the River Pikkala in South Finland in this photograph. The photographer is Heikki Nikki.

This photograph provides a spectacular view of Peyto Lake in the winter time, completely surrounded by snow cover. Peyto Lake is in Banff National Park in the Canadian Rockies.

This image captures the impossible brightness of a snow covered landscape further illuminated by full sun. Dean Berry is the photographer.

Here is one of many pictures of snow captured in Yosemite Valley, California, USA. This one shows the recent snow fall coating the landscape on a brilliant sun drenched day with the majesty of El Capitan rising above the scene in the background. Thomas Winz is the photographer.

There's nothing like the magic of a damp snow fall that coats every branch and twig; creating a frosty pattern that illuminates the lanscape as far as the eye can see.

Photographer David Boag places viewers high atop a peak in the Austrian Alps to experience the wonder of this isloated spot in the depths of winter.

      These images are breathtaking! Thank you so much for sharing with people who hate snow and won't brave the cold to take such pictures. I would love to know which module you used. I am not familiar with one that will let you position a picture on either side, and a larger picture at that.

      Yes, I chose this as my white lens for the quest but it was really pleasant to look at with temperatures here pushing over one hundred degrees. Thanks for the cooling pics.

      Beautiful picks. Kind of reminds me of shoveling - we get quite a bit of snow here in New England. We already had our first snow in October, the first time I can remember that happening. Nice work, Squid Angel blessed!

      I'm painting a winter trees abstract using many of your trees shadows and light - after searching hundreds of pictures your sight went straight to my artists eye. How lovely and beautiful and perfect.

      Amazing images. I saw snow once, many years ago and one day I will make an effort (which means a long way to travel) to see some more. Your images only prompt me to hurry up my timetable
