I wish I had any kind of a winter to shoot - icy, dead or otherwise.
Where I live, it's year-round summer. No beautiful fall colors, no pastel spring, no winter wonderland. Just sun, sun, sun and green-brown flora. Many people consider this place to be a "tropical paradise" but to me it's kind of hell. I crave architecture, derelict buildings, subways, snow, falling leaves (palm fronds don't count)...
I have none of this here. So what I do is I make myself work for it. I go and force myself to look at everything around me and find something I like. I love setting up abstract concepts, shooting "scenarios" or scripted scenes, models and portraits, and recently discovered how much I enjoy street photography (though really, we only have one street where anything like this is truly possible).
I think that regardless of where you are or what your situation is, there's still things you haven't tried and very likely something out there that you can find enjoyment in at any time of the year.
