Snow rainbow / 5

This is a far more contrasty and colorful version of what I actually saw on my walk (I cranked up the saturation, a lot). Given the similar pattern of colors in these over-saturated snow photos, I assume that the color must come from the camera and lens, not the snow itself.

 

Taken in Madison, Wisconsin.

 

Background: An intense blizzard came my way on Tuesday night. Thus, I was obliged to take my Thursday Walk on Wednesday, before all the snow was neatly plowed and packed away. I couldn't pass up the fun of walking through massive snow drifts—at least the ones the crazy-industrious street cleaning crews and citizens hadn't gotten to yet.
