Snowflakes


every time it snows
the flakes look different


they fall through the sky differently as well


today they were floating
softly
slowly
landing in piles


today they look like we imagine
when we think of snowflakes
tiny crystalline stars


I do mean tiny, like the size of a sesame seed

I put out the red cloth for them to land on
the other photos are taken on my car

we are officially in the season of snow and ice
i love snowflake season

  7. Oh my goodness...these are so delicate, Tammie! I can hear "The Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" and "The Skater's Waltz" in my head when I look at them. :-)

  8. That is, each snowfall is different and draws its flakes.

  9. I fully agree with the Furry Gnome, awesome pictures! In the middle of last century, snowflakes could only be photographed through a microscope. Amazing that a camera can do it now. The wonder is that with gazillions of snowflakes, each one is different. Maybe that is mirroring the stars in the sky.
    PS I am addicted to the wonder of snowflakes and even created a couple of knitting patterns for our family's ski jumpers.

  17. Hi Tammie, I showed the kids in my class these today. They were so impressed (you were classed as awesome and "sick", which trust me is the highest accolade an 11 year old can bestow). Fabulous photos.

  24. Dear Tammie - How magically beautiful! I simply wonder that those who have macro lens can capture such fascinating snowflakes like yours? Thank you for braving the cold. After a week of cold winter days here in Nara, I’ve enjoyed Indian Summer days these days. As snow is rare treat here, I look forward to snow-scape from you. Stay warm.
