Yep that's an excellent puddle. If you're going for a more realistic look I
would recommend altering the snow texture a little too, maybe bump up the
emission value. I've never been able to develop a talent for textures so I can't
offer better advice but experimenting with the settings may yield a more natural
appearance.

Kind regards,
