Intricate star shapes
Drifts that sparkle like diamonds
Winter's bright debut

Very nice Kristine, and incredibly accurate as we just got 10cm dumped on us here in Ottawa.

Beautiful words that trickle down across the screen just like your first snowfall. Grand read.

ooooh,I loved the brightness of these sparkles... I think the word "debut" made me think of those mornings you wake up with the bright sun on white snow and how it catches the light of thousands of timy prisms....

Always the best one, nothing like the year's first. You've captured much the beauty of it in this splendid piece.

Kristine- This one went into my favorites...a winter snow is one of my fondest things...the whiteness somehow refreshing,soothing and peaceful and you've just so vividly and accurately captured it in this piece that I could actually feel all those things! Great work! R

I love the image of the first snowfall, just as I love the beginning of every season. Beautiful work!
