Sunning capture Ken, the snow really does help to add a softness and brighten the image. Nicely done.

Beautiful surroundings and light for this awesome capture.

I agree! That much snow makes for a very different type of light than it would in the summer, with everything else being equal. The world in these parts can become a big soft reflector. A true advantage of living with such chilling conditions for so many months of the year. Thanks for taking the time to view and comment, Paul.

Merci, Jane! I appreciate you taking the time to view and comment.

The evening previous this image being taken, there was a snow storm with very strong wind and plenty of snow. The result was a nice backdrop for this majestic great gray owl.
