I love what snow does to the landscape and to the way my eyes and mind perceive. Snow is the ultimate equalizer, turning all the variations in the terrain to vague swells, obscuring the small plants, and silencing most of the sounds. All of a sudden I notice details in texture, like all the ridges in the tree bark and the way tree branches look like scribbles on white paper. What textures and patterns there are become so much more pronounced in a world with very little texture other than soft white mounds.
