This is taken right in front of our house. We do have a wonderful view. One would never think it was spring but we know by the length of our days. Everyone is putting tinfoil over their bedroom windows now. It is very difficult to go to bed at night as it is so light out. Children are falling asleep in school because their sleep patterns change. They want to be outside playing all night.
If anyone can help me with taking a blue tint out of snow pictures, I sure would appreciate it. I did an autocorrect colors on this one but I was once told I shouldn't do this, but to learn how to do it in a way in which I would have more control.
Thanks for taking a look folks.

and I thought Ottawa was cold ... ha ha ... I am feeling much warmer now ... nice shot you have here .. although it is not sharp, but it is still a good capture of the spring scene
As far as i know the blue tint is due to the actual colour of light in the shaded areas with snow .... light of blue wavelenghts get reflected much more due to which you get the bluish tint (the same reason for the reddish tint of the photos near the bonfire, but over there it is the red light) ... this can be corrected if you use the white balance correction on your camera before the photo (Nikon D70 should have it though I am not sure)..
just in case you do not know about the white balance correction, let me know I will be happy to give you more details
ciao .... Sarju

It's hard to believe it is spring in your area. I guess the daylight does play havoc with the sleeping patterns. I like the scene with the boats frozen in the water. As for the cyan colour of the snow. I'm not sure if your camera has a White Balance setting. If it does, just go there on the menu whilst you are composing a snow scene. Then you can move the 'arrows' up or down and look at the scene at the same time. The colour balance will change with each 'arrow' change. Pick the one that makes the snow the whitest. In Photoshop you can also correct the cyan balance. I did a workshop with full instructions for you.
