Top Winter Photography Destinations

Submitted by on January 5, 2012 – 10:49 amNo Comment

With winter quickly approaching, it’s time for photographers to begin planning their locations for winter photo shoots. While it may seem like winter only offers white plains as far as the eye can see, we beg to differ! Today, we’re sharing some of the best places to shoot your winter photos right here in the United States.

Acadia National Park, Maine

With rocky shores covered in white forest, and the ocean waves crashing nearby, winter in Maine is one of the best places to shoot a juxtaposition of winter and ocean photos. Maine also offers a wide array of nautical sites, including lighthouses, to capture a diverse portfolio of winter photos in a relatively small area.

Arches National Park, Utah

Arches National Park offers the perfect combination of interesting, world-famous architecture like the Delicate Arch, along with the contrast between white snow and red rock.

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park, California

A perfect mountain getaway, this is the trip to take for nature at its finest! With lots of hiking trails available, you can shoot Yosemite from all angles, capturing a wide variety of all the park has to offer. In winter, you’ll find picturesque snow capped peaks to go along with clouds and greenery.

Central Park in Winter

Central Park, New York

Perhaps the most obvious addition to our list comes in the form of New York City and Central Park. With over over 250 acres of lawns and 7 bodies of water, Central Park takes up 6 miles and 6% of Manhattan’s total acreage. With such a huge expanse and notable sites throughout (like the John Lennon memorial) there is no shortage of photo-ready spots to capture the perfect winter scene.

Portage River Valley

Portage River Valley, Alaska

Last but certainly not least, we offer Portage River Valley with it’s stunning view of the Northern Lights, or technically: the Aurora Borealis. The lights are a beautiful addition to the snowy peaks and frozen rivers of the Alaskan terrain.
