Snow curves by rvwalker

Snow curves

These beautiful soft curves happen in places that are sheltered from the wind. Instead of wind ripples, we see curves. This is the edge of a beaver pond along Salt Creek in Wyoming. The air seemed to glitter here as frost appeared out of nowhere like snowflakes.
Thats a fave for me, it is a scene I may never see with my own eyes and now I have a fair idea when people say pure as driven snow.
