Have you ever had the chance to look at a real snowflake? Not the big, fat clumps that fall around you but individual, seemingly microscopic snowflakes?
I remember living in CT most of my life and being used to heavy, wet snow, I only had the chance to see true snowflakes maybe twice. Living in Colorado where its cold AND dry means we get to see this occurrence much more often.
I woke up quite late this morning – around 9:30 a.m. because of another crazy late-night-can’t-sleep-because-I-have-ideas-swirling-in-my-head paint session (more on that tomorrow!) so when I finally got up and let the dogs out I knew right away that the light snow that had fallen was this very special kind of snow. It glitters like diamonds in the sun and is so parceled out that there is no mistaking it. These are true, individual snowflakes and they are stunning.
Because it was so late and the sun was starting to come over the top of the mountain and down on the house, I knew I literally had minutes to capture them before they melted away.
Mother Nature is hands down the most talented artist. Ever.
