If you enjoy the winter landscape by snowshoe, ski, or snowmobile, you probably also like to record pictures of the scenery. Because all the white snow fools your camera, you need to increase the exposure (add more light) so the photograph accurately reflects the view you see. You also need to carry a spare battery inside your warm coat since the low temperatures drain the battery's power more quickly than in summer weather.
