Published January 13, 2017

Misty mornings, foggy streets and our favorite dry fruits — it's that time of the year when a blanket of snow dramatically transforms every place hit by winter.

Last week we challenged our photographers to take amazing pictures showing their love for winters and we were overwhelmed by the massive response. Here are some magical shots submitted to us on Instagram through Dawn Weekly Project 'DWPFrozen':
