Snowflakes



floating through the sky
landing on earth 
a bit tattered
yet all i feel is wonder
at their translucent filigree beauty
~




and if you are wondering.....
as to what you are looking at:


the ice on this log 
and 
sweet teensy weensy snowflakes that landed upon it

  2. I never would have guessed this was ice on a log! And what a gorgeous log it is!

    We had a few flakes this morning, but when I tried to get pictures of individual flakes, they are all blurry. Sigh.

  14. I thought the flakes were on water - that log has some amazing icicles, too. Look how it's keeping its balance! Any new snow to report, Tammie?

  15. that last image is wonderful. i was seeing oatmeal.

  16. fun that you are all enjoying these images.

    hello Barb,

    we got snow a couple days ago and dustings here and there since. Those weather guessers are suggesting we are about to get quite a bit. It does feel like winter now, trees are white until the wind blows and the earth is coated. I can almost xc ski, one more snow and i think I can safely head out.

    Deanna, oatmeal is a fun thought.

  17. As cold as it looks, it has a great beauty to it. We never have snow here so this is very pretty to see but I am glad I am snug and warm. :)

  18. If the flake patterns aren't amazing enough in their fine delicacy those ice baubbles off the tree show a klunky grace.

    Awesome captures.

  22. Each photograph is a moment to relax, a moment to thank your magic ... no limits!
    Tammie A thousand kisses.

  23. so many thanks to you all for your visits!

    Earthenmagic,
    my camera would be better if i used a tripod. your question... how long does a flake last? well these were frozen to ice and may last longer. Longevity depends on the temperature. If it is below freezing and nothing disturbs them, they last until it is above freezing. Every time it snows, the snow is different, sometimes like sugar, sometimes little balls, sometimes like stars made out of compressed snow and sometimes crystalline beauties.

    lovely life to one and all~

  43. Ah, snowflakes--and not one every in history--ever like any other. Rather like people, aren't they?
