Winter Photo Expedition! Enjoy the Wonders Of Winter!

The landscape changes when winter hits, and because so many of us retreat to the indoors when the temperatures drop, not many of us get to enjoy it. But this gorgeous natural transformation is something for the photo books. So suit up and get ready for a winter photo expedition and enjoy the wonders of winter.

What Is a Photo Expedition?

A photo expedition is a game where you head out with a list of things to try and find and then take photos of them. It’s kind of like a scavenger hunt. You can do this on your own as a personal challenge or get with friends and make it a competition. Whomever gets the most photos on the list wins!

What’s On the List

What you choose to have on your list will depend on where you’re heading out. For example, if you live where there are waterfalls nearby, you can add a frozen waterfall to the list. If you live where it snows, there are a lot of snow-related things you can do. Try to look up specific animals in your area that either only come out in the winter or that you’re more likely to see in the winter. Here are a few you can get started with!

  • A frozen waterfall

  • A snow angel

  • A frozen body of water

  • An animal playing in the snow

  • Santa’s sleigh

  • Christmas decorations

  • People sledding/skiing

  • Yourself in your own homemade snow fort (make it a race to see who can build the fastest)

  • A large icicle

  • Birds looking for food

  • Winter sunset

  • Ice caves

  • Animal footprints in the snow

  • Snowy train tracks

What To Do With the Photos

Photos are great because there are so many things you can do with them! If you get some really great ones, you can frame them and hang them on the wall. Create a photo album or scrapbook, whether an actual book or digital, to document your expedition. Make your Christmas cards out of the ones that fit the season such as Santa’s sleigh or Christmas decorations. Finally, if you want to share them, sites like Flickr, Instagram, and Pinterest are a great way to show off your photography skills! We’d love to see what you found! Post some of your best photos below!
