Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, no one can deny the beauty of winter. In my personal opinion, in the eyes of an artist, there is more beauty to be captured in winter climates, depending on where you are. Where I live? Suburbs of a nearly treeless city? Not so much. But rural areas where any nature goes and snow is common? Plenty to do!
You don't have to be a photographer to get wintertime in hard copy - you just have to be inspired! Below, check out some creations found throughout DeviantArt; Winter-themed, Christmas-themed, and general holiday-themed, separated into highly recognized (understandably!) creations, and creations which I feel need more recognition by the community and just need a nudge into the spotlight. If these don't make you wanna curl up by a fire and write some Christmas cards, nothing will! ;D
