I’ve been out in the cold chasing snowflakes:
I stood with a high magnification lens on a tripod, waiting for flakes to fall on a dark oak leaf I set out. A few times a beautiful intact flake fell and then the wind blew the leaf – I stuck the leaf in the snow. I ended up almost as cold as the flakes by the time I was done. Brr.
Happy Holidays! Those of you in the northern hemisphere, get out and enjoy the winter – it’s beautiful out there.
