Lately, I’ve been digging in to my archives of images.  I came across this one, taken after a 2 foot snowfall, on a bright sunny day (a rare combination in these parts 🙂 ).  The snow was particularly light and fluffy and the sun sparkled off it, almost illuminating each individual snowflake.  This one bush was still hanging on to it’s leaves, leaves that looked almost skeletal, and each leaf had a little sparkling snow cap.  These snowy mandalas capture a bit of that same feeling.
