For the sake of contrast, I added this black and white image that is the same as the previous. I want you to see how the mood changes with the absence of color. I was also torn between which was my favorite (color or B&W) so I decided to just add them both.
The way the light dances and kisses the snow, just before it disappears for the night, has me swooning. I love how the colors and the shadows playing with the texture in the snow.
