I love the snow. I love skiing on it (on trails, not hills), I love walking on it (with snowshoes), and I even love shoveling it off the driveway (most times). All of these pictures are taken between 44 and 45 degrees north, which means there is good light for most of the day, due to the low angle of the sun. Photographing the snow offers opportunities to find patterns -- sometimes subtle, sometimes stark -- along with pleasing textures. I love the snow.
