Interstitial 96: By Jove

I think I got it! I think I captured a snowflake, or at least two stacked on top of each other. Check the gallery below to see it up close and my favorite—moss—with snow!

It was quite strange waking up on March 6 to a trace of snow on the ground. It was lightly snowing when I was taking shots, and I wasn’t at all expecting to see the actual shape of a snowflake in my photos. I didn’t think the kit lens was capable. What a fun surprise!

P.S. The image darkened after bringing it into WordPress. I’m not sure what that’s about.

 

Interstitial 46: Bare Barberry

I enjoyed watching the bare barberry (sounds like a name for a distillery) branches light up in reddish brown tones when the sunlight shone through the trees. The contrast with the snow was delightful, providing a nice background. I was very careful to not smoosh my face too close – those thorns are sharp!
