When we first began redoing our front and back yards, we bought a truckload of river rocks. I salvaged many of the red rocks in the collection because I wanted to cover them with crochet. In particular, a nearly heart-shaped red rock.
The backyard still isn't done yet, and the red rocks aren't covered with crochet yet. Which means that heart-shaped rock is the perfect surface for trying to catch and photograph snowflakes!
Initially, the rock wasn't cold enough. The snowflakes melted the instant they hit it. As the temperature dropped, I began to have more success.
It is SO good to have my Nikon D300 back and for it to be working as good as new!
