It may be the worst time to venture outdoors, but winter offers such sights and sceneries that are simply too beautiful and breathtaking to pass up. During this season, everything is pared to simplicity, and all the colors in the world seem to be reduced to only a small palette of white, black, and wintry blues. But in this barebones environment there is great beauty: beneath the cloak of snow and ice, and the glow of fitful light, landscapes take on a whole new appearance, unveiling a stunning display of crisp colors, stark tones, and dramatic contrasts. And though the world seems barren and empty, there is a vibrant life that hides underneath the mantle of white, a vibrant beauty that reveals itself only to those brave enough step beyond the warmth of their homes and out into the frigid cold.

To celebrate the surreal sublimity of the season of snow, here is a superb slideshow of some of the most beautiful and breathtaking pictures of winter. All the photos exhibited here are courtesy of the beneficent photographers from Unsplash and Pexels. If you don’t know, Unsplash and Pexels are two amazing websites featuring millions of stunning photos donated by the world’s most generous photographers, all available for free for anyone to download and to do with as they please.

Normally, I would slightly modify on Lightroom the photos I download from Unsplash and Pexels before featuring them on my website, not because I find them lacking or displeasing, mind you, but simply to match the look and feel of my blog. But for these pictures of winter, I deemed it best to leave them unaltered, so you can fully appreciate and admire the original style and creativity of the photographers. However, most of the photos, particularly those in portrait mode, and to a lesser extent, those in landscape, have been cropped to fit within the slides. Please note that all the credits are linked to the original photos (as I always do) and to the respective Unsplash or Pexels accounts of the photographers, so you can browse their fine photographic portfolios and discover more of their amazing works.

That being said, go ahead and enjoy this slideshow of spectacular pictures of winter, and may these remind you that even in the coldest season, the world never stops being beautiful.

These are only a few of the numerous beautiful pictures of winter featured on Unsplash and Pexels, only the ones I could gather in a short amount of time. There are literally thousands, hundreds of thousands of pictures of winter there, all stunning, all creative, all free, and more are being added each day. If only I had the time to peruse and admire every single one of them…

Anyway, if you want to view the pictures of winter featured here in their full size and resolution, and discover even more amazing pictures of winter, then you really should visit Unsplash and Pexels, and prepare to be astonished by the superb skill and sheer creativity of the world’s most generous photographers.
