22/365 Photo Project - Why snow?

Why snow?

This weekend's snow storm gave me a chance to experiment with the White Balance settings of my Pentax DSLR, instead of opting to go with the camera's Auto White Balance setting I adjusted to shade for this shot because it was very over cast and the afternoon sun in yard and long since gone behind the neighbors house. The same shot take with AWB was decidely darker, the snow had been exposed as grey rather than pure white.

Taken with the Pentax K200d in Av mode, aperture set to f2.8 to highlight the tree in a shallow depth of field and the Sigma 70mm F/2.8 EX DG Macro Lens with Manual Focus, I still had to correct for tone in Photoshop to bring out the details in the tree trunk.
