Even in the winter, BBG is a beautiful place to photograph. As you wander the grounds you may see small bursts of color emerging from white towers of snow, or the silhouettes of leafless trees against snow-heavy clouds might catch your eye and make the perfect shot. Some of our recent visitors have captured some truly beautiful moments in the Garden and the collage below is a collection of some of our favorites that have been submitted to the BBG Visitor Flickr pool. To add your photos, visit Brooklyn Botanic Garden Visitors Group Pool. We encourage all our visitors to add their favorite BBG photos to the group. While you're at it, you can also submit your photos to be considered for the 2012 calendar contest. To learn more visit BBG Calendar 2012.

If you fee like you might need to brush up on your photo skills, consider taking Intro to Digital Photography in the Garden. The class meets from 10 a.m.–1 p.m. for 4 Saturdays, beginning on February 12.

If outdoor photography in winter isn't your thing, BBG offers plenty of other art classes, from Chinese Brush Painting to Exploring Pastels. To see the full list of winter classes, visit Classes & Workshops.
