Recently, I posted the image of a single snowflake. After my husband looked through those images that I did not select, he suggested that I post them, too, so that is what I’m doing.
The first four images were taken during the day as the snow was falling. This final image was taken at night. The snow sparkling in the light of the street lamp caught my eye. On closer inspection, those glimmering flashes were caused by individual snowflakes acting like tiny mirrors. This image is of one such snowflake, which looks as if it is fossilized within the snow (along with a few smaller snowflakes).
