The snow had begun in the gloaming,
And busily all the night
Had been heaping field and highway
With a silence deep and white.
Every pine and fir and hemlock
Wore ermine too dear for an earl,
And the poorest twig on the elm-tree
Was ridged inch deep with pearl.
-James Russell Lowell, ‘The First Snow-Fall’
What an artist you are.. this is exquisite Rachael..
Wow! This is a perfect macro! The focus and bokeh is great and the snow adds that icing (hehe) which sets the mood!
Did I word this right? Nevertheless, Well Done!
hit it right on the head Kevin – superb image Rachael
I’ll pile on with the praise…. magical shot (and poem)!
Beautiful – had to share this one with my husband, great quote.
Two favorite words in one phrase: snow and gloaming. And a magical photograph to go with them. Reaching up to catch the snow seeds as they fall.
This is beautiful, Rachael. Soft and delicate.
Delicate and very artful, Rachael. My theme is winter macro today, even though it seems like a distant memory now!
