Again today it is blowing and snowing hard outside. I thought it might be a good time of year to share some older posts on winter photography.
First, I think anyone who may be doing any photography in cold, winter weather should find this post helpful: 8 Winter Photography Tips.
For those in the Northern portion of the Northern Hemisphere, this can also be a great time to photograph northern lights. Scientist have reached a consensus that last December was the low point of our current solar cycle, so the northern light activity will probably continue to be slow, but hopefully improving. The next solar maximum is estimated to hit in 2013.
Even during bad years you can see the occasional northern lights (aurora borealis). With that in mind, here are two more older posts that may be beneficial: Finding northern lights / aurora borealis and another post on photographing northern lights / aurora borealis.
