Artsy Fartsy Friday~~~Wilson Bentley The Snowflake Man

 
              Sometimes the most beautiful things in nature are the tiniest. 


                            Across the nation many have been getting a lot of this lately...
                                                                               
                   snow



And as beautiful as it is; it can be such a pain in the rump. However, when I see it like this....

I see it in a whole new light






            There are people who's job it is to photograph snow flakes. These delicate Nature's works of art float to the ground and their divine design disappears and would still be unknown if not for brilliant photographers. The most famous of them all would be Wilson Bently. He was called the Snowflake Man. His photography became wonderful works of art still cherished today......enjoy.


                  






Stay warm,


              Blessings, Joanne

  2. Hope you're staying warm. Here in WA state it's just rainy :).

    I love snow flakes, I bought a bunch of artsy ones for my Christmas tree a few years back.
