Amanda at Mocking Bird gives some great photography tips for shooting in winter light and some delicious b&w snow photos from Flickr.
Bathing in light sounds fabulous right about now. It's a grey, rainy, light-less day up in Portland, which makes me thankful it's also the shortest. But I do love the white sparkly Christmas lights at night.
(From kcicco on Etsy: Each year at Christmas time, the city of Delft in Holland has a special evening where they put up thousands of lights and light the city's Christmas Tree.)
