winter jewels

snow sparkles

“Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated., When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind.”

~ “Snowflake” Bentley 1925

Last night we had a dusting
and this morning it just sparkled
in the sunlight
winter is far from over
we are expecting a big snowstorm
to hit here on Friday
ah winter in New England!

  1. how did you manage to get them so detailed? Mine always turn out like giant clumps. beautiful photos, and job well done!

      1. You’re welcome! I’m actually promoting your post on my blog today. I think a lot of people should see it – your post and your blog in general! 🙂

  2. Snow really is magical and you’ve brought that magic out with these photos. I’m looking forward to the upcoming snowstorm too – hope you enjoy it!


    Thank you for visiting my blog today. I appreciate the time you took to stop by. May your day be filled with joy and peace.

    1. Thanks Pamela. Actually, I think I just got lucky, it was the right kind of fluffy snow. I used a cheap little close up lens (10x) that I attached to my standard 55mm lens. A nice macro lens is on my wish list but for now, this works pretty well!
