Mark Webb said:Video is superb quality for an internet video . Which camera are you using? or is it something to do with the way you have uploaded?

John! a couple of things i do is....shoot manually. get a correct exposure manually and fire away in the knowledge your camera wont be fooled with dodgy metering. just watch for the sun coming out.
if you can, shoot in RAW. giving you way more control over W/B, which can be really tricky with snow. different times of day give different W/B settings, more so than normal. don't be too concerned with blowing highlights! it's nearly impossible to get that 'wonderfully' exposed shot, after all snow is white! in my last pic, i had highlight warning, but wasn't really bothered.
if it's not blue sky, go with B&W...like what you did. the little bit of colour there is on a cloudy, snowy day is negligible, so dump the colour.
