A few years ago, I captured this tree after the first heavy, wet snowfall just prior to Christmas. As I was getting in the Christmas mode yesterday, all of a sudden I realized I’d almost forgotten about this post. And I hadn’t created any mandalas yet (at least not ones that I could share just yet). For some reason I thought of this image of the snowy tree and began to play around with it. I think I had used to make just one mandala when I was first figuring out how to make them, but have never created any more with this image. As usual, some pleasant surprises were hidden there.
