We all know about the cons of shooting in winter: it's cold, it's dark, there is no bright colours, no flowers, the battery dies faster, and getting to places may be harder. But there are may positive things too! Here's my list for a nature photographer, and feel free to add to it in the comments:
1.There are opportunities for making both happy and gloomy pictures. It is easier to make a horror/macabre/dark photo when everything looks dead and desolate, not green and lushy.
2. You have a reason to spend time outside.
3. There is time to master low-light photography.
4. Photography is a good excuse for walking in knee-deep snow.
5. Since everything is dry and covered with snow, you have to be more creative in finding an interesting thing to shoot, and post-processing.
6. The sunrise and sunset last longer, so you have more golden hour time (assuming that you get to see the sun at all
7. There are some great natural phenomena, such as hoarfrost, sundogs, northern lights or ice fog.
8. No mosquitoes!
Now, your turn. Climate-specific cons are welcome!
