Thanks, Dominick; the original version it turns out, had a visible blue cast to the snow, which I'd failed to notice at the time.

You can keep the chill -- though I'll probably be singing another tune in a month or so. This is beautiful, Chris, but I don't miss the season.

Ken, it is even nicer not to see blue snow---my first version of this it turns out, had a slight blue cast to it.

Many thanks, everyone! I'm still beaming this month! This is one of my favorite images shot this year (there hasn't been much shooting, compared to past years) and I am thrilled that the rework of this image made it! (The first attempt had a blueish cast I hadn't noticed initially.)

Thank you very much, Merna & Laura!
Glad you found it, and enjoyed it, Laura! I sure would love for us to get another snowfall like the one shown here... it was a record-setter, and I missed most of it because my job was in NYC that year.
