A Little Gem

Is that a REAL snowflake??? It looks like glass. You can tell I don't see snow but once every 10 or so years...and then not a lot of it.

Carletta said...

Stewart: You could barely see it with the naked eye.
Ms. Davis: Yes, it is a real snowflake! I've taken snowflake shots for the past three years or so and I always think they look like old fashioned crystal jewelry. :)

Faye said...

Wow! I had no idea that it was possible to capture a snowflake in such great detail with our mostly pedestrian cameras. I'm going right now to see if you tell us what camera you use!

Holy cow that is amazing!

amanda said...

Wow! I had to wonder, too, if it was a real snowflake. It looks like an ornament we would have out at the holidays. - And I am VERY accustomed to snow, as I've lived in it all my life 6 months out of the year.
I've never seen one shaped like a "picture" snowflake before!
