Sungold Snow Clouds

Here's an interesting special effect nature produces that I hadn't noticed before. Sunday, the day after the big storm, it was sunny, cold, and windy. In the early afternoon, I watched wisps of snow blowing off branches and through the trees out my window, and as they'd pick up sunlight, they looked like someone took a handful of gold glitter and tossed it into the wind.

That spot of light in this pic is not the sun, which is higher in the sky above the confines of this pic, but a sungold snow cloud. Specially ordered for Philip Pullman fans. There's a couple more pics of the effect under the cut.

The light of Telperion and Laurelin mingling.
