Blankets of Snow

    Here are a couple of photos of the snow that is blanketing our the lower part of our property.  Both shots were taken less than a minute apart.  The difference in color is due to the light.  The top photo was taken with the camera shooting almost directly into the sun.  Because the camera had to restrict the intense light, it caused the shadowed areas to become very dark, which took out most of the color.          
    The same effect occurs when you “squint” your eyes.
    In the lower photo the sunlight was not as intense so the photo shows more of the subtle coloring in the scene.
    There is about 10 inches (25 cm) of snow on the ground.
