Photo Friday - Welcome March!

Since this is the first day of March I considered putting up a pretty spring flower or something, just to get me into the springtime mood, but it is still very wintery around the midwest.  Call me crazy, but I actually like snow.  It makes everything so pretty.  Without snow, winter is just yucky, but snow makes it magical and I was so happy to capture it.
Yesterday we had these gentle flakes floating down from the sky and so I wanted to try and see if I could catch them for a picture.  Surprisingly I was able to.  I don't have a macro lens which would have allowed me to get super close to the snowflake and capture more details, but I worked with what I had.  I had to zoom in and sharpen up the image to get this.  I just love looking at the different snowflake designs.  I find it fascinating that all flakes are different.  Hope you enjoy the picture.

Pin It!


  1. So cool! We had some big fluffy snowflakes a few days ago and I tried to capture them on camera without any luck. We just moved from Florida to Denver. I thought that I would get sick of the snow very quickly but I am finding that I love it!

    1. Thanks! Snowflakes are notoriously hard to capture. You really do almost need a macro lens. Keep practicing though, you never know :)! I love snow for winter!
