Wordless Wednesday

tulips from my valentine

full bloom

I sacrificed one tulip...

...to catch snowflakes!

barely there

I'm melting!

sugar-frosted

crystallized

twins

bicycle gear

like glass

peppermint layered

wind shattered

perfection

    1. 16 more inches on the way tonight, Pat. I'll have to see what kind of unusual surface I can use to capture the next round...

    Don't they just take your breath away?

    P.S. Nice tulips!

  6. Oh I love tulips. So elegant. The snowflakes are pretty. Mine are almost gone...it's amazing what a turbo powered hair dryer can do with a little determination! :)

    1. Maybe I should take my hair dryer outside and blow away some of the 16 inches falling now, Stitchy?!? :)

    1. Thanks, Patty! I'm hungry to go out and do more, but it's dark, cold, and I'm tired! :)

  8. So beautiful. We had 6-7inches in north ga. Wish I could have gotten such beautiful photos. Tried and it didn't work.

    1. Is that normal for you, Di? I've never been to Georgia, but I know there are some good bike rides there, nice and hilly.

      Snowflakes are a challenge to shoot. I've been trying for years, and I finally started having a bit of success when I broke down and bought a set of macro tubes. (I'd promised myself I wouldn't buy any more camera equipment, but the macro tubes have been very much worth the $70 or so it cost!)
