I Can't Call These Snowflakes but . . .


The good news is, we didn't get the snow storm that was being predicted last night and today. In fact an hour or so ago, we finally just got a dusting of snow on top of a thin layer of ice. The interesting thing about the snow is that I can't call them "flakes", I was calling them snow "sticks". After seeing this, I got out my zoom and some close-up filters and headed outside and here is what I managed to get. Not as clear as I had hoped but you can see what I mean. I'm just glad they were not accompanied by a few gazillion of their little friends.

  3. OH I love show! I tried getting some snow flake shots the other day. I didn't think to put something black under them, but it makes sense! I really like the detail you got in this. Great job!

  6. These crystals were on the mirror of my Jeep and the shot was taken with just the ambient light. Now that I have learned more about using the light meter in my camera, I'm having better luck getting what I want. Thanks all.
