Re Snow in picture looking blue. This is because fresh clean snow is a very good reflector of light, the reason why it looks so bright. It reflects back almost all the light that falls on it making it look white. I the sky is clear and blue then the snow while reflect that blue and so will your IR&W setters white coat. Hope this helps
Well you have done very well writing what you have, don't know how many times I have said that people speak such good English it makes us (the supposed English Speakers) look really bad, because I for one can't speak or write a different language.
Congratulations for that as well
