Even though many of us aren't here for the cold weather, it's hard to deny that there's something so captivating about the falling snow. Sure, once February rolls around and the sky is grey, you probably want to scream at the sight of a mound of snow blocking in your car. In fact, I've found myself to be totally against winter more times than once. But, without fail, most of us seem to fall in love with the first snowfall of the season each year. The rolling blankets of snowflakes glisten in the sunlight, and the world seems so peaceful and quiet for a bit. Winter is also one of the most underrated times for picture taking. If you're ready to brave the chilly temperatures this season and hit the snowy slopes, you're going to need some solid Instagram captions for snow photos.

While a winter photo shoot might cost you temporary numbness in your fingers (along with a bright red nose), a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows will be an instant fix. And besides, you'll love the pictures so much, you'll grab your girlfriends and snap away all over again. Photos have a beautiful way of capturing the perfect candid, snowy moment. Pair your seasonal snaps with one of these 27 particularly dreamy winter quotes, and your next gram will be cool as ice.
