Tiny Miracles Of Beauty

Ah, I'm so pleased to have some pictures in falling snow this winter! We've had several snowfalls, but they've eithered happened at night, or while I was occupied, so these are my first proper pictures enjoying the flurry. Flakes kept getting caught on my coat and I was reminded of how Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley pioneered snowflake photography. What I mostly remember about him is how he captured flakes on bolts of black velvet and described them as "tiny miracles of beauty." Learning that in junior high science class always left me with a romantic vision of him and snowfall in general. How tender it seems to be caught mid-fall on a bed of black velvet...
