March is a funny month. The saying goes “in like a lion, out like a lamb” but in reality is more like “Surprise! It’s winter again!”
At least that is how it felt last week, when nearly a foots of sleety powdery snow fell on Good Friday. Followed, of course, by warmer weather, crocuses pushing up through the ground, and then more snow and sleet…
This was probably the last opportunity for snowflake photographs this season, so I gave it a whirl. Nothing but dusty bits of sleet and ice. Oh well – if you can’t be with what you want to photograph, you may as well photograph the thing you’re with (to mangle an old saying)…
Dusty bits of sleet and ice. In past years I’d have a shot of a bee or two by now. Well, that’ll come…
OK… you probably don’t want to hear this, but this is
one of the coolest “snowflake photos” I’ve seen. Don’t know
why, but I really like this photo! Maybe it’s just because the
concept of “snowflake bits” is new to me, so the novelty lends
itself to intrigue. Either way, particularly with the
selective focus and the reflection, that shot is winner! Nice.

Glad you like it! I have a possible snowflake project in the wings and needed something different, so this might fill the bill.
