Can you believe this, a snowstorm in March? Well, actually it's not a snowstorm, but rather a brief show shower this morning, with huge snowflakes! I grabbed the camera right away, and started shooting. The first thing that came to mind was a pointillist painting. That is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of pure color are applied in patterns to form an image, and then the mind kind of blends the dots together to complete the image. I was amazed at the intensity of the snowflakes - I could barely see from the house across the side yard. It was all over in ten minutes or so, and was beautiful while it lasted.
