Photo of the day: Bright smile in the snow

Early May is still snow season at Mount Rainier National Park, so when we had friends visiting from Oregon, the "thing to do" was to take them snowshoeing at Mount Rainier! Snow, of course, presents all kinds of challenges for photography, because all that whiteness often fools the camera's sensors into thinking it needs to make the picture darker than it should be. The flip side is that, properly exposed, colors can be quite vivid against the light background. That's certainly the case with this portrait, and I'm especially pleased with the both the color and the detail in the snow crystals clinging to the knit cap.
