settings for getting this photo, with the snowflakes in focus: exposure 1/8000 sec, Aperature f/1.8, focal length 85 mm, ISO Speed 400, then have something dark (the trees) in the background so the snowflakes will stand out, and manually focus on the snowflakes
Play in the snow: Build a snowman. Go ice skating. SLED! Make snow angels. Ski. If you're forced to live in a snowy climate, make the best of it. I don't like being cold, but the workout you get from playing in the snow generally tends to make the frosty feeling go away. Don't forget to have a nice, cozy blanket and super thick, homemade hot chocolate waiting for you when you get back in.
