lanierb, yes the halo is the backlit snow being blown up by the wind. With a longer lens it becomes more obvious.
cf, images below.
Jim, your comment about the blue cast hit a nerve. I honestly never paid real attention to this.
Also in summer time, of big chunk of this landscape are glaciers and are naturally blue, but not in winter obviously.
I went back to all my recent winter time photos to experiment a bit. Results are very interesting and finding the right balance is indeed not trivial.
Except for the snow flakes around the sun, I originally thought I had nothing to complain about #1, until seeing it with a whiter look. I tend to agree, it might be too white now.
I'll play more with #2. Thanks for the discovery. At least I'm now conscious about the concept.
Your memory looks fine too. Here's the photo from the original post, #3, and the whiter experiment #4
Here I believe, the slight blue cast remains
