Peculiarities – Snow Squalls

We had a quick snow squall blow through yesterday; brilliant sunshine preceded and followed the showers of white. I grabbed my camera and ran for the path in the woods. The last few weeks of winter photos have all looked the same, a photo in flying snow would be something new. Before I could reach the broken tree stump where I take the photo each week, the snow stopped, the sun emerged, and my desire for capturing the snow squall with my camera was denied. But wait…dazzling in the brilliant sunshine, snowflakes, gathered on old spider webs strung between barren twigs, resembled blossoms of Queen Anne’s Lace.


The blue sky with the snow-laden spider web was the perfect choice for the Color Your World – 120 Days of Crayola/Sky Blue challenge. It also worked out well for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Looking Up At Things.


The moral of my tale: When things don’t go the way you hoped, look around, there might be a blessing, somewhere close by, in disguise.

  1. Kathy,
    How the path has changed within just weeks. I am glad you got to see a bit of the snow between sunshines.
    Sometimes perhaps we need to be a little down in the dumps, to appreciate a bit of happiness when it comes, it seems.
    Everything is relative, as Einstein would say, I guess.
    Lovely, blue sky. How far are the woods from your house ?

    1. The woods are close Susie, if I walk they are about five minutes away…if I run…and arrive breathless…it takes about two minutes. Yesterday, I ran about half the way when I realized the snow was ending, but I didn’t get there in time to catch the snowflakes falling, just the remains on the web.
