When Snowflakes Turn to Crystals

Like Diamonds

Tiny Diamonds

Sometimes the most ordinary bit of flora– brown, decayed– stands amidst the most amazing of surroundings. With the temperatures below 10˚, and the sun shining, the snow looked like a layering of bitty diamonds.

    The snow does look like tiny diamonds. How pretty. I haven’t seen much snow! Lovely flora there alone among the glittering snow. 🙂

    Bo, I tried to leave a comment earlier on this but got a WP glitch. I wanted to say that winter seems to have become a muse of yours. These simple shots of dormant plants and/or snow are some of your most beautiful.

    So simple; so beautiful.

    I was in Western Illinois last week. Lots of opportunities for fog photos — a new adventure for me.

    NIce shot. The snow’s even better if it’s on a ski hill. 🙂
