Piled High with Snow
Scenes of snow appear to be monochromatic. Unless the light is just right, the white of the snow overpowers the darker areas of the scene and most of the color of the trees and brush look black. Taking a photo such as this one also requires the photographer (me) to stand outside in the freezing cold. The danger here is that the camera equipment becomes too cold to operate properly and also that a return to a warm house will cause condensation on the lens and inside the camera.
In this shot, I liked the contrast between the snow and the branches of the trees.
