It is beautifully snowy here now. The trees are bent under the weight of it and the landscape is white and softly focused. These pictures are from yesterday – lots of snow was falling but some of it was melting and reforming into tiny drops of suspended worlds. Today those little worlds are frozen.
A Winter welcome.
To give you an idea of size; I think this little drop is suspended from a spider web. I have a picture of the drop focused perfectly but you can’t see the little world inside…

Karen, you make it possible to visit suspended worlds. Thanks ever so much:)
I actually find myself envying you the snow that allowed you to take this loveliness Karen.. it has been raining here for days – dismal and VERY grey.. not conducive to photography at all ! I particularly love the 4 th and the bottom one..
You really showed the world in this season with the wit !
Hence, gazing into tiny tiny spot showed the entire world.
Excellent Karen! Glad to see your snow and your snow photos.
We won’t be getting snow here in South Carolina. 🙂
I love these frozen little worlds. I’m so glad you gave us some scale Karen. Incredible.
Reblogged this on filmcamera999.
I love the suspense of these ! Beautiful work as usual 🙂
a winter wonderland full of wintry worlds, big and small…
Cherry ice and small worlds in your world! Lovely! 🙂
I love the delicate beauty of the world you portray.
The 4th image (I believe it is filaments3) really wants to be recreated in a painting I think!
Enjoyed all of these.
Wonderful images Karen… Now I really miss the real snow!
a m a z i n g !
wintry beauty Karen 🙂 I know I’ve said it before, but I do like to see it through your eyes in LA 🙂
Aaaah, and early white Christmas! 🙂 Thanks Karen!
Love the abrupt change from painterly abstraction to acute focus – all great shots. Have a great 2013, Karen!
Glorious set. I especially like the red berries. 🙂
Ahh – so lovely! The last one is like opening a perfect tiny present … or walking through an unexpected door in a wall, to find a garden behind it. Thanks for sharing your tremendous work! Best to you for 2013!
