If you look closely at the edge of the snow, you will see some extraordinary crystals. I cannot tell you how hard it is to get good photos when it is late in the afternoon, in the shade of a canyon wall, with a telescopic lens and it is about 14 degrees. I was concerned that my camera might freeze. Most cameras are built to work only down to about freezing or 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Most of the problems occur when the camera is moved from a very warm temperature to a very cold one and from cold to warm. If you are in this position, I would suggest reading up on operating your camera or smartphone in a very cold environment.
