There's lots of physics about in the transformation of the sound and the light - the light bounces around more and the sound bounces around less. The scenery is cleaned up - both the pretty bits and the unsightly bits are hidden by a layer of fresh crisp snow - and it is all (at least briefly) special. And the people - just walking up the street there are more smiles and hellos than usual - maybe it's just that everyone needs to slow up a bit but maybe the snow lets a little bit of optimism shine through.
Whatever the reasons for the transformation - the snow provides a splendid reason to be out and about with a camera.
