Spend any time in the British Isles, and you’ll find an unforgettable sight to photograph: a large sheet of snow filling in the landscape.

The mystery of snow faces has dominated the culture of the British Isles for hundreds of years. It’s the reason we have so many snowboard-inspiring landmarks and why, when a long fine autumn day makes its first sudden appearance, you know it’s going to get colder. We’ve rounded up our favourite shots of snow-covered castles, landscapes and hidden acts of nature. Let’s take a closer look.

1. The Northern Lights Over Shetland, Scotland

Much of the world loves the Northern Lights because of how beautiful it is. You’ve probably watched it yourself and know how magical its colours and intensity can be. One of the biggest pictures of it all is the Northern Lights over Shetland, where you can see the transformation of sunlight from blue into green to red with each warming of the sun. You can also see colour changes in the mountains on the Island as well as in the walls of the dramatic Snow Harbor above.
