Winter walk to Green Turtle: Prismatic snow

On the day I took my walk the sun was shining brightly. Everywhere I looked the crystalline quality of the snow was catching the light and acting like a prism. Just like someone had strewn jewels across its surface. It was beautiful. I tried capturing it so many times and each time when I viewed the photo back the colors were not there. The snow was glistening, but no prism action was happening through the lens. I took the camera off the mode I was using and tried a few different things. I finally got this image by using a slower shutter speed on the shutter priority setting at 1/320.

What I always think!  Diamonds!

How beautiful!

Becky: LOL!
Mary, it is, isn’t it?

Its almost like that fluffy white thing our grandmothers wrapped around the base of their Christmas tree…the one with all the different colors of sparkly glitter.

It looks like the old fashioned cottony ‘snow’ that we used to use at xmas.  That got glitter all over everything!

Debra, I hadn’t thought of that, but you’re right! It does look like those sparkly glittery things!

Jan, you and Debra were on the same wave length!
