Winter / by Magnus Thordarson

To take pictures of snow can be a challenge for the photographer.  Different weather situations, variable brightness and color flat subjects make snow sometimes difficult to capture in a photograph.  Yet, when skilled, lucky or both, the photographer may have an opportunity to make magic.  The Winter gallery holds pictures recounting winter in Iceland and various locations in the United States.  The oldest are from the 1970s, the most recent are from Iceland and Sierra Nevada, an environment always grand and impressive.
