Here are some strange snow facts for you, from mentalfloss.com
But why white? The reason we see objects as colors is because some wavelengths of light are absorbed while others are reflected (remember, light is a spectrum of colors). The object takes on whatever color light is reflected. For example, the sky is blue because the blue wavelengths are reflected while the other colors are absorbed. Since snow is made up of so many tiny surfaces, the light that hits it is scattered in many directions and will actually bounce around from one surface to the next as it’s reflected. This means no wavelength is absorbed or reflected with any consistency, so the white light bounces back as the color white.
Snow can also sometimes appear pink. Snow in high alpine areas and the coastal polar regions contains cryophilic fresh-water algae that have a red pigment that tints the surrounding snow.
Other common types of snowstorms include a snow squall (an intense snowfall accompanied by strong winds that only lasts a short time) and a snow burst (a brief, intense snowfall that results in rapid accumulation of snow).
“Getting an inch of snow is like winning 10 cents in the lottery.”

“Spring needs to stand up and kick winter in the snowballs.”
“When snow falls, nature listens.” ~ Antoinette van Kleeff
Hope you have a great day!

En esos momentos donde fotografiando “paramos” el tiempo, busco expresar mi ilusión por este lenguaje, mi deseo es que ellas hablen por mí.
