For those of you in need of a winter holiday, maybe these sets of images will coax you from hibernation:
- Bjorn Holland’s motorcycle trip across Europe and Asia has yielded some lovely lovely panoramas that make me want to visit some beautiful, barren landscapes in the “Stans.”
- The Sacramento Bee has a nice gallery of frosty winter scenics here.
- The Big Picture comes through with a couple more winners. First, there is this series of winter images that features photos from the Harbin International Ice and Snow Festival in Harbin, China. The Harbin festival seems to be the bigger, more gaudy brother to Japan’s Sapporo Snow Festival. I’m sure both of these would be great fun.
- And again from the Big Picture: More of London from Above. Great aerial photography by Jason Hawkes.
