The sun is shining and the snow is falling. The sun hitting the snow flakes looks like diamonds falling from the sky. It's one of those incredible, magical light effects that the camera or at least my camera doesn't capture. There are small hints of the effect in the glints of light that show in the snow on the ground, but the falling snow leaves its sparkling impression only on me. Not unlike a rainbow, as the sun moves higher in the sky the magic will be gone even if the flakes continue to fall. It's a Monet thing. A change in light alters everything. So many beautiful sights in nature are transitory and easily missed. Even if the picture isn't perfect, the memory is there. Who knows tomorrow the magic may be back!
