Travelling Through the Winter Prairies

This picture, drawn from imagination, attemps to represent the cold winters in the Prairies. A highway, covered with a thin layer of blowing snow particles, cuts through the snow covered field on both sides (and middle).

Design & Implementation Details
POV-Ray was used to implement this picture. No external image files or processing software was used. After two days of reading the first few chapters of the POV-Ray manual, and example code, I was able to start working on this picture.
The picture was build in many stages, each exploring a new feature. I started with adding a basic camera and source light and a plain representing my world! The following list enumerates the different stages of implementation:
I did not need to borrow any outside source, except that provided by the POV-Ray 3.6 Macintosh templates and standard include files.

Source Code
The POV-Ray source file is available here
