Snowflakes...lovely things...do you believe that no two are alike? I do, though I now know that they can be very similar.
Jill sparked my curiosity a few weeks ago with her discussion of snowflake photography. I had to wait for days to have daytime snow; at first, I used a velveteen pillow to capture snowflakes. I soon learned that the nap of the fabric was very unattractive when enlarging snowflakes. It looked like this.
The snowflakes were intriguing enough that I wanted to try again, which I did. More waiting for daytime snow and then snow came yesterday (today, too, for that matter). I was out on the deck in my pajamas capturing snowflakes using first green paper then red paper.
I was appalled to realize that a snowstorm is like a battlefield. All those flakes hit the ground and most blow up on impact. Terribly sad.
Every now and then one would land intact...
Sometimes, various objects landed.
I even saw a skier...
and a skater!
You know what? I'm beginning to think that I don't have enough to do. =)
Have you been wasting time on anything lately?
Happy February! ♥
