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!

      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!
