#346 cold winter blues!

346/365 cold winter blues!, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Why does white snow sometimes look blue? I remember reading that it is to do with how sunlight is reflected back from the surface of snow crystals, or absorbed into the bank.

Today, it was particularly cold, minus 15 degrees Celcius, but with a bright sunshine. In the shadows, the snow looked particularly cold and blue.
