First snow of the winter began 9 days ago here in Scotland and it's still snowing.

Not a flower or insect in sight for me to try out my new camera and macro lens, so here is my first macro... first snow!


The snow is not falling as flakes, it is like tiny fluffy tennis balls. It is rolling off the plants and piling up on the ground. The top layer is being blown into heaps which form against any solid objects they meet.

Global warming? Aye, right - bring it on, please!

Snow piled up into a miniature snow landscape. Tiny snowballs approx. 0.5cm diameter.

First experiments with 60mm macro lens ;)


Editing: Photoshop.


My inspiration: Words of Peace.
