We could all use a little something to lift our spirits once in a while, and luckily our readers sent us a few pictures for our monthly Facebook photo contest that did just that.

Sunlight peeking through clouds, bright blue skies, lights shining on icy tree branches – we’ll be gazing at these photos when dreary winter weather gets us down.

Check out the slideshow below to see some of our favourite photos from readers this month, and head over to our Facebook page to see this month's contest winner.

HuffPost Canada will announce the next photo call on Facebook at the end of February.
