It’s really difficult to get good photos in snow and in cloudy weather. The snow is very bright, but the sky is very dark. One thing you can do is to make sure you use the white balance setting on your camera and make sure you select “cloudy.” Another thing you should pay attention to is the type of filter you may have protecting the lens of your camera. Being from California I typically have a UV Haze filter on all of my lenses. I also have a polarizing filter but seldom use it. To learn more about filters and their effects and uses check out the wikipedia page here.
