Back in August, a fellow photoblogger from Utah said that a shot I took of a thistle going to seed “is what photography is all about.”  I thought about Melanie from One Stop Closer when I drove past the same field and saw the dry remains of wildflowers now covered in fresh snow.

When I showed the photograph to my oldest daughter, she pointed out something I’d originally missed, the large, perfectly formed snowflake sticking to the right side of the dry wildflower.  Do you see it?

  2. How could you miss it? Its posing for you. A slight case of “forest for the trees” it seems.

    • Oh, Paul, my teenage daughter had many reasons why I missed it: I’m old, I’m blonde, my eyes are going…

      Ha! I’m just glad she pointed it out, because I was definitely seeing the forest and no trees!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing articles and pictures

  4. I saw it right away…perfection 🙂

  5. Beautiful shot, and I’m honored you’d think of me!
