It takes a wet snowfall in winter to have the snow stick to the trees. If the weather changes and the sun comes out, or if it gets windy, the snow quickly falls off or melts off the tree. So the trick is to be ready right after the snowfall if you want to capture a good scene.
The photos shown in these scenes, one in color and one in black & white provides two different prospectives. The one in color captures the blue of the sky which then shows up on the snow. In my opinion, while the scene is colorful, you lose some the detail from the old oak trees in the forest.
The black & white view is more dramatic and shows more detail of the tree and more separation in the background. in my opinion. This photograph was captured in 2002 and has not been photoshopped. As in most photographs, the larger you go with the print, the more detail appears. Click on the photos to enlarge them.
