A simple snowflake

Although we tend to think all snowflakes have the 6 sides and all the spikes, but mostly they don't. It takes very humid weather cold but not overly cold weather. Most of the time, they are simply little columns or underdeveloped.

Just about a half hour ago, some fluffy flakes starting falling so I got out just in time before the sun set to get a few. It wasn't easy as it is windy out but I've long wanted to capture some. It's not perfect but I still like it and thought I'd share.

Maggie,

What's significant, is not the snowflake, but the entire picture. After all, a picture is not a snowflake, a picture is just a picture and that is a separate thing. I like that the snowflake is used as an inspiring element but that the rest of the surface of the image is used well.

The fine red line around it, however, might not be really be needed as the pictures already works well without it.

You are probably right. I really didn't think about it too much when I did it.
