The colors of snow

The Eskimos have, well, I forget exactly how many different words for snow, but there are many. Surely some of those words have to do with all the different colors snow seems to have.
Much of the coloration has to do with reflection from its surroundings, as well as from the sky. Still, I have always loved the subtle shifts and play of color found in a fresh bed of snowfall.

Here are a couple for you to enjoy!
