Snowy Winter Photography in Oregon

There is something so special about winter in Oregon. The Oregon Cascade Mountains come to life as they are blanketed with the first snow of winter. I try to make it an annual tradition to get at least one snowshoe in every year to capture something different every winter in Oregon. There is something so magical about photographing trees draped in heavy snow, and the first light of sunrise illuminating a snowy peak.

So this year, I thought I'd share all of my favorite images from the snowy, wintery Oregon landscapes. Thanks for looking!
