Until this winter, snow actually covering the ground was something I hadn't seen since I was a toddler. I hope my lack of snow-perience isn't too obvious on all of these snow pages. Most of this chapter was completed before I got my first glimpse of what several inches of snow on the ground while it is sunny looks like. The thing that really struck me the most when I actually witnessed snow was the lack of shadows and how it uniformly coats everything in a sea of white. Snow is really interesting looking.
Edit: I received some really great advice about snow from a reader. I've updated this page with overcast skies and lighting.
