What colors do you see?

What colors do you see?

In the movie Pearl Earring the artist Vermeer asked his maid who was modeling for him. “Look at the clouds what colors do you see?”
She replied “white” he told her to squint and look again. She saw many colors then.
What colors do you see when you look at the Snow?

    Thanks so much for doing this. The only time I think of the color is when I’m out walking. This let me open up the shots in Photoshop to actually test them. The shadows are always a grey tinted blue by the sky, but when the sun is at an angle, the snow is lit yellow and the shadows appear purple by contrast.

    The eye of the beholder and no two people see the same thing :-) Well done Thanks!;-)
