Dainty Snowflakes

11 Dec

Yep. We’re back to the deep freeze, but on a good note, I didn’t have to bust ice off the cattle tank this morning because it isn’t windy.

Of course, the temperatures are supposed to fall all day.  We had another dusting of snow overnight.

In other news, my camera is supposed to arrive home from its cleaning today.  Hopefully, it doesn’t freeze horribly before I can get the package put inside.

Once it’s home and warm, I’ll have to take it out in the cold for more snowflake pictures.

Sharing with Alphabe-Thursday for the letter D.  I’m also sharing with Wordless Wednesday.

    yes, hope the camera is in good shape when it gets back in your hands! 🙂

      Me too! I kind of wish it had arrived yesterday when it was a tad bit warmer.

    I don’t know how you all stand this cold stuff. I was in Las Vegas for the NFR and it was so cold that I got froze out and came home to where it is 60+ degrees. Have a great week.

      Well, I don’t have a lot of choice, since I live here. 🙂 You do get used to it, but it’s a bit early for this cold.

    I’m sure you’re anxious to have your camera back! Looking forward to many more pictures!

      It’s home! It’s home!

    Nice shots of the snowflakes! I’ve been looking for some beautiful flakes to shoot but have so far had no luck.

    • Teresa December 11, 2013 at 5:37 pm #

      These were perfect. I just wish I’d had my good camera. I guess I’ll have more snow in the future though. 🙂

    Beautiful photos. Keep warm. 🙂

    • Teresa December 11, 2013 at 5:38 pm #

    We are presently having some cold weather but not very much snow yet. I’m very sure that will change though…it always does.

    • Teresa December 11, 2013 at 5:38 pm #

      I do like the snow, but I wish we’d have temperatures more normal for December rather than February.

  7. Jackie December 11, 2013 at 6:20 pm #

    Lovely shots!

    • Teresa December 11, 2013 at 6:39 pm #

    The snow flakes are so pretty! I hope we’ll get a white Christmas, but it doesn’t look very promising right now.

    • Teresa December 12, 2013 at 6:47 am #

      Everyone should have snow for Christmas. I’m pretty sure ours will last through the holidays.

    Amazing photos I have never seen such huge snowflakes before. They are stunning!

    • Teresa December 12, 2013 at 8:24 am #

      Thanks. They were big and dry, so they actually sat there long enough for me to try getting a good shot.

      • Patty B December 12, 2013 at 6:03 pm #

        Interesting, ours are always wet and melt on contact!

    Exquisite and gentle snowflakes!

  21. Talon December 12, 2013 at 4:55 pm #

    Individually, snowflakes are pure magic. If only they didn’t insist on getting together! 😉

    • Teresa December 12, 2013 at 5:41 pm #

      They do have a way of ganging up on us!

  22. Laurie Kazmierczak December 12, 2013 at 6:10 pm #

    Nicely captured♪ Have a wonder filled week…even if it is freezing!

    • Teresa December 12, 2013 at 6:14 pm #

      Thanks! Hopefully, it’s going to be better soon.

  23. fredamans December 12, 2013 at 7:14 pm #

    So hard to capture, you did an amazing job!

    • Teresa December 12, 2013 at 7:15 pm #

      Thanks. This is the first time I’ve ever been half-way successful.

  24. storybeader December 12, 2013 at 8:17 pm #

    Snowflakes are so beautiful as they dance down to the ground…’

    But they can also cause a lot of destruction too!

    Thanks for linking to the letter “D” – Delightful post!
