It's a cloudy day. And most of the times the photos are going to look dull unless you use some kind of additional lighting or reflection. But when there is snow it's different. The snow on the ground and surroundings act as a reflector to enhance light on your subject. It gives a perfect glow on your subject. On the flip side it is really cold. We have a very limited time to take photos during this weather. The best part is it is relatively warmer when it is actually snowing.
That is how these photo was taken. We know it is going to snow based on the weather. Planned the photo ahead so we don't have to try different things after going in to the cold.
Gear: Canon 5D Mark ii, 85 1.2 @ f1.2
