Here in the south, anything below 70 degree is cold. I know some of you in like..oh…Omaha…are getting a good laugh, but it’s about 40 outside right now and it feels like hell just reached my Gulf (and usually warm) state.
Even so, I do find snow “pretty”.
When I lived in Ohio (where “summers” reminded me of early fall here), I got my fill of snow. I always felt driving in it was like driving in a washing machine. I remember the first time in my car trying to duck away from the flurry of it all.
So imagine my surprise one day when I went out and found out that snowflakes actually LOOKED like the kind of snowflakes you cut out with paper.
It may seem weird to not know…but I just didn’t. Snow on TV looks compact. I never thought of it as individual pieces.
I took these shots with a regular point and shoot about 5-6 years ago…no special camera, lens, nothing. They just fell on my car running boards and hood and I was shocked to see, with my naked eye, a “snowflake” that I could have cut out with paper.
This one had landed on some tulle that I had hanging:
You can see it up close with a little crop:
I sure wish I had had a macro back then!
Have you ever noticed how “pretty” snow is?
