I still remember the first time I tried to shoot good "snow shots."

What a disaster. In December 2004, I'd been using my first Canon Rebel DSLR for only two months prior. I'd read an article about how important it was to keep the batteries close to your body to prevent the cold from taking away their charge. I'd read about how UV Haze filters could "fog up" from the sudden temperature change. I'd read about the importance of picking a good angle, to show the wintry elements in their best light.

*Why then, did I climb a ladder onto a building's roof, just to get a picture of a parking lot covered in snow?*

Fast-forward nine years and I'm much more comfortable shooting snowy shots. Exposure compensation doesn't scare me. My remote trigger is second-nature. I don't even protect the battery like I used to (I just bring along two more).

This December, I had some magical wintry moments with some colleagues during one of our meetings in Indiana.
