Lisa go to manual mode. Set the arperture to about 6.5 then playaround with the shutterspeed. The UV filter and the polorizing filter will help somwhat in cutting back on all that bright reflective light! A gradual gray or neutral density filter will also help. Think of shooting bright snow like shooting bright clouds!

Thanks Jim..glad you "felt" it..even tho I have lived up here all my life I am awed by it..snow is snow..but this is frost which I think if it gets colder will turn to ice..then we are going to have fun..power outages..tons of broken trees.But luckily so far the forecast is for some sun in a couple days..so it should melt it before it gets cold again.Whoa..typical canuck..going on and on about the weather..Thanks for your kind words..:-)

Lisa below are a few examples of what the filters can do. Not an exact replication but close!

Graduated coffee. Use the lightest of these you can.
