It’s been hard for me to get into the Christmas spirit this year due to the 80 degree weather I am currently experiencing. Yes, I know you’re rolling your eyes at the thought of me complaining about the heat, but for most of my life I lived in a place that actually went through the four seasons, so I’m used to a cold winter.
Instead of traveling far to experience a white Christmas, I decided to create a contest on Fine Art America entitled “Let It Snow.” Contestants could subject up to two pieces of art in any medium as long as it contained snow.
Nearly 500 pieces of art were submitted! The contest has just ended, and the first place winner is…
*Amy Porter! Congratulations! Her photograph of a young buck entitled “Winter Buck” shows the beauty of the falling snow in Connecticut.

For Ms. Porter, photography has been a lifelong passion. When she’s not working in the field of science and technology management, she enjoys showcasing the beauty of nature with her photographs. She has been a member of Fine Art America since 2013 and has over 60,000 visitors. Please feel free to check out her photos, which are available for purchase, by clicking here to visit her profile.
