To me winter is cold, ice, and snow, so for this gallery I use the meteorological winter definition, which encompasses
the three coldest months of the year, running from December 1 to the end of February, rather than the more common
astronomical winter definition, which is based on the position of the sun and runs from winter solstice to spring equinox.
I also include any photos from late autumn and early spring that look like winter (i.e. contain ice or snow). Since I love color,
to me the challenge for winter photography (other than being out in the hostile, unfriendly, and often dangerous environment
of the Canadian winter) is to find and photograph color during a typically drab and gray time of year.
