As winter edges nearer, for some, it's time to go into hibernation and snuggle up indoors until the unwelcoming climate passes. 

But for others, sub-zero temperatures won't get in the way of a photoshoot; those freezing temperatures make the shoot possible!   

Whether you'll brave bitterly cold conditions for a great shot, or you're looking to create an artificial version in the studio or at home, check out these (un-brr-lieveably) beautiful wintery-themed photos created by the PurplePort community.
