Snowflake on my Scarf

It snowed slightly on Friday afternoon as I was heading into the city and a perfect little snowflake fell on my scarf. I quickly took out my camera and carefully snapped a macro-shot of it. How beautiful is that snowflake? The other white spots are the not-so-perfect snowflakes.

So has any random incident of beauty happened in your life lately?

Perfect is right...that's beautiful!

I'm been having lots of "I'm so lucky" moments. Recently while staying with my friend's relatives we were moving cattle in utes (much different to how we do it here at home) there was a beautiful sunset, starting to cool off after a stinking hot day...just had a moment. hehe, I've been having a few of those lately, I hope it's not a bad sign of things to come!

What a beautiful picture. I live in Texas and we hardly ever get snow, and when we do it doesn't look like that.

I love this photo. It's very beautiful.

Yesterday I was driving road from Eugene, about an hour long drive. And practically the whole way we were treated to clear skies and an absolutely amazing sunset directly in front of us. Whispers of pinks, purples, oranges, and blues. It was lovely.

Wow. I've always seen the crystalline patterns of snowflakes in illustrations, but never realized they actually came down in that shape. Beautiful, Ming!

Beautifully done, Mother Nature! And beautifully captured, Ming.
I'm always open to random incidents of beauty, and grateful when they come my way. I guess the latest is the baby who smiled at me on the subway—and also the lamplight on the snow on the tree outside my window right now.
