Snowshoeing Beside the Railway Bed

This is the best kind of winter day!  It might be colder than comfortable, but the sun’s rays are strong.  Everything is blue and white, but an incredible number of shades.  What colour are shadows in the snow?  Not black!

The snaggle-toothed railway fence is surprisingly photogenic, filtering snow into drifts.

Fence posts are more interesting the older they get.
