We can all grumble about Winter when it’s here, but it’s hard to deny that everything looks a little more majestic when decorated with snow and ice. It can look magical, almost alien and there’s nothing quite like the comfort of cozying up to a roaring fire as the snow falls outside.

Here’s some incredible photographs capturing the Winter in all of it’s beauty and some quotes to compliment them…

14 Beautiful Pictures Of Winter


“You can’t get too much winter in the winter.” – Robert Frost

“Winter is a season of recovery and preparation.” – Paul Theroux

“Even in winter an isolated patch of snow has a special quality.” –  Andy Goldsworthy

“In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.” – William Blake

“Of all the seasons, winter is the most conducive to the great art of dormancy. This art requires an appreciation of semi-consciousness: the beautiful and necessary prelude to sleep – a special pleasure in itself that is all too often neglected, under-valued or looked down upon.” –  Michael Leunig


“The winter solstice has always been special to me as a barren darkness that gives birth to a verdant future beyond imagination, a time of pain and withdrawal that produces something joyfully inconceivable, like a monarch butterfly masterfully extracting itself from the confines of its cocoon, bursting forth into unexpected glory.” – Gary Zukav

“While I relish our warm months, winter forms our character and brings out our best.” – Tom Allen

“Snow provokes responses that reach right back to childhood.” – Andy Goldsworthy

“Snow isn’t just pretty. It also cleanses our world and our senses, not just of the soot and grime of a Fife mining town but also of a kind of weary familiarity, a taken-for-granted quality to which our eyes are all too susceptible.” – John Burnside


“A snow day literally and figuratively falls from the sky, unbidden, and seems like a thing of wonder.” – Susan Orlean
