The snow had all but melted from our yard (only one small pile that, in a previous life had been an enormous snow bank, remained)…  then, fresh from the heavens, it fell anew.  Not unlike a dusting of white powder frosting on a pretty cake, it dusted our prairie meadow of a lawn.  So, today when my husband and daughter walked out the door, the two of them left lovely little tracks in the snow.  There would have been something amiss, had I not taken a small moment to capture those footprints.

I have to admit, I would have preferred the image in colour.  But having captured it with my BlackBerry Pearl, there was just no correcting the haze of colour over the snow.  And it was really bothering the eyes.  So I dumped it into a black and white filter in iPhoto.  LOL  …And just like that, no more weird colour washes on the fresh white snow.  😉  It’s the lazy man’s colour correction.  😀
