Evening in the snow

Snow is a killer, isn’t it?  Either it’s gray, or blue, or blown out so you lose all detail.  This was taken at about 5pm just as the sun was setting.  I set white balance but the light was low, A at 4.5 and SS was 1/10 which means that since I wasn’t using a tripod most of them didn’t come out due to my shaking.  I tried adjusting f-stop but I wanted to get the detail in the snow.  Though the snow looks a bit blue, I like it.  My true goal in my photography is to capture what the eye sees.  And because it was evening, the sun was set and it was um….freezing, the bluish, to me, adds to it.  I feel cold looking at this.  And as I recall, I WAS cold taking it.
