    I want to take pictures like these, but I'm not sure what kind of lens would be best, or how to expose the shots into the sun and not make them look all silhouette like.

    A wide angle lens is used for some, a fisheye for others. There is a lot of fill flash going on in the first and last, and probably not just from a hotshoe flash. Most likely high watt-second strobes. Exposing for snow is tricky. Knowing how to meter is key. The meter wants to make everything grey. Adding some exposure to a meter reading on snow is necessary to make the snow white.

    Btw, please change those images to links. We don't allow direct posting of images of other photographer's work. ;)

    Cool, I think I've got some ideas now on how to go about taking pics like these. Thanks, and sorry for the direct posts.
