We haven't had a lot of snow here in North Wales up to now, but this is the view from my window this morning and it looks quite pretty. I love snow, but some hate it especially when it turns slushy. My DH is one of these people.
This is a closeup of one of the mountains with the sun shining on the snow.
It's difficult to believe that snow is made up of millions of snowflakes, each one different. Have a look at this wonderful website of snowflakes. Snowflake and Snow Crystal Photographs
I am particularly excited about these particular images because today a friend of mine bought a microscope on my behalf. I want to be able to take microscopic closeups of various things and you may have noticed that I have shown photos of Microscopic Photos in my sidebar for the last few months. Taking photos of snowflakes might never be possible for me, but I do hope to be able to play a lot and hopefully learn how to use my new toy very soon.
The kind person who bought this for me and is posting it tomorrow is Anita Bruce She has a degree in zoology and recently took a degree in textiles which involved experimenting using biological science and creating textile art from the inspiration. Take a look at her wonderful Slideshow here.
