We’re in the midst of another cold spell here in the UK, and over the last couple of days we’ve seen a bit of snow. Fortunately the ground hasn’t been been cold enough for the snow to settle, so the entire country hasn’t ground to a halt yet.
The ground might have been too warm for the snow to not melt the second it made contact, but once I’d been outside for a little while my black coat was cold enough. Whilst waiting for a train in the snow yesterday, I realised the snowflakes settling on my coat were perfectly formed. Despite being out in a light snow flurry, I couldn’t help grabbing my camera and switching to my macro lens to grab a shot of some that had landed on me.
I’ve never seen such perfectly formed snowflakes. They always seem to fall in such a haphazard shape most of the time.
