I absolutely love snow, and the detail of the individual flakes. So when one of our larger winter storms dumped 10″ on us in the last couple days, the opportunity to do some snowflake photography was one I couldn’t (never can!) pass up. In fact, during our trip to Alaska last year, with a great expanse of mountain range rising above the inlet in front of me, I was squatted down with my macro lens, trying to capture little bitty snowflakes on pieces of grass. I could have done that for hours. Here in Charlotte, NC, snow comes maybe a couple times a winter if we are lucky. And within that, the chances of the right conditions to produce perfect flakes which make it all the way to the ground are not high. So when we had a brief window of decent conditions, on Tuesday, I was squatting on the ground yet again. A feat which is not so easy with my pregnant self. But worth it! I love the intricacy. Absolutely amazing.

There are also some images – my favorites – from a winter storm a few years ago on our etsy store, HERE.
