I LOVE SNOW!   Winter is dramatic and photogenic.  For wildlife it creates a beautiful contrast.  Winter can be tough for wildlife but for some species, like ptarmigan, snow is a lifesaver.  Burrowing deep into the snow keeps the ptarmigan safe from dangerous temperatures in the far north.  For photographers, snow covers up all that distraction simplifying your compositions.
