That's why this week we’re featuring a group of Sony photographers braving the cold to get there and capture frozen and frosty scenes that you get to see from the comfort of your couch. Have a look and give their accounts a follow for more.

Palm trees and beaches are great, but today we're featuring a group of photographers who brave the cold to capture frosty landscape images with camera and lens.

Cath is a landscape/astroscape photographer and a member of the Sony Alpha Imaging Collective. Based in Alberta, Canada, she explores and captures the colorful beauty of the Canadian Rockies in her backyard.

You can’t get much more of a magical frozen landscape shot than inside this ice cave she visited below. She took this 3-shot vertical panorama using her Sony α7R III and Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 G Master.

He visits some incredible places and does a great job of portraying their beauty and vastness through his images. Read about how he photographed the world’s largest cave HERE and check out this vertical stack of four images he took using his Sony Alpha camera to show the height and perspective of a massive ice wall.
