Fence

Not only were the skies featureless clouds, but at times there was a frozen mist that hung in the sky which limited visibility. I think it made for good conditions for black and white images.

One thing to remember in these conditions, and I find myself often forgetting, is that camera meters assume the world is 18% Grey. In conditions with a lot of snow, that assumption is wrong and your images are underexposed. Using your camera's exposure compensation feature will help give a better result. Essentially EC lets you tell the camera that the 18% assumption is not correct and you give it a new assumption.
