On nice days we go snowshoeing sometimes.
The longer we stay out, the more we begin to blend in with the surroundings, all covered in frost and tinged in blue.
The sun doesn’t make it out to see us much; not once in seven hours' travel do we stand in its light. But while hiking in the shadow of one mountain, another, luminous like the moon, provides an ambient glow.
No one actually turns blue, but everything looks blue because of the lighting. We do, however, get covered with frost--little crystals like the one in the photo (which is an example of surroundings being covered in frost and tinged in blue).
