It also depends where you live/are!
Up here in northern Scotland (57 degrees N) I love the winter light; even at midday the elevation of the sun is low enough that it acts like a horizontal searchlight. Couple that with the intense blue sky, varied cloud colours, burnt sienna tones of the heather, dark green of the native pines, buff straw of the dead grass and claret of the birch twigs and its difficult not to take photos that others find appealing!
See, for example, some of my efforts at http://homepage.mac.com/macgarvin/Menu15.html
Even 600 miles down, on the southern English coast, in winter there is a lot of time until late morning and from early afternoon when the sun angle is not the critical factor.
And if the light isn't good for landscapes, I tend to find myself getting pretty occupied with capturing images of rock textures, bark etc. - there's (almost!!!) always something, if you have the eyes for it!?
