Snow was falling when love came calling on this lonely heart of mine.
You were standing there with snow flaked in your hair.
You kept stalling while my thoughts were calling on every way I knew
For one excuse to get aquainted with you.

Then I said Snow Flake, my pretty little Snowflake
ooh ooh The change in the weather has made it better for me.
Hey ö Hey ö Hey Snow Flake, my pretty little Snowflake
Youâve got me warm as a fire with the burning desire for you.

Ice was breaking and love was waking in a winter wonderland
When I felt you slip your fingers in my hand.
Now snow is gleaming and Iâm not dreaming I know this is for real.
The love I have is too much to conceal.

Previous snowflakes:
Snow Flakes I
Snow Flakes II

I hope you like this pretty little Snowflake which rests on a branch of Thuya. I have posted the original photo as a workshop.

I know nothing about snowflakes Luc and this is really beautiful. I looked up your other shots and am amazed at their beauty. Wonderful capture. Thank you...

And I think I know too much about snowflakes, Janice :-))) Great post Luc! I love fragility of this crystal. And song as a note is great idea I think.

Thank you Luc!
It's wonderful! I love your photo - very arty and romantic. And of course - as always well done!

Poetry and with your photos it is perfection!!!

Wonderful! The snowcrystal in the middle is perfect!!! :)

Luc, Nice change of pace here..I see you're into popsicles now! ;-)) (please don't take this the wrong way!) Very dramatic composition isolating the single snowflake this way..Thanx for the great prose (You might say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one..) Well done, Thanx!!!

This is very good Luc.
But we will hope that the winter is over soon. It has snowing and blowing a cold wind in 4 days now but today is a little better.
The flake is shinning in the dark.
Very well done my friend.

Great shot!
I love to watch macros of this beautiful crystals. I suppose that its quite hard to take this kind of shot, but this one is really good.
Very well done!

Nice shot Luc, but I prefer your prevoius flakes. Well done.

Very nice image Luc,
The flake stands out really well and looks fantastic.
Thanks for posting

Very impressive shot Luc and very artistic too. The light is amazing on the flake, well done for spoting this and well done for making such a good image. Great stuff.

My Friend, Thanks for this, and the recording - I have the CD. Beautiful snowflake.
PS - I posted 2 pics taken with 150 macro in todays post, if you want to have a look

Oh that I were a snowflake
For all the world to see.
I'd cast my spell on the Thuya
As the jewel I long to be.

The sun I'd catch within my grasp
It's touch would glisten me.
For one of life's small moments
As the jewel I long to be.

Belle prise et surtout très originale, la brillance de ce flocon par rapport au reste de la composition. Vraiment superbe. Félicitations !

I don't know how you do this but it's amazing Luc. A very good post. Extremely well done

Absolument magnifique!
Je trouve cette photo très inspirante.
La définition du flocon m'impressionne beaucoup et je crois que le contraste avec l'éclairage sombre de l'arrière-plan y fait pour beaucoup.
Merci !

Such a rare and beautiful gem of such fleeting beauty. it is beautifully captured in such detail a very big well done. TFS even the doggy song ;0)))# (just not my taste in music)

This is great Luc. Nice composition and the light shining on the main flake really sets it off.

Rebonjour luc,

Là encore, cette photo est très originale, l'oeil est directement attiré par ce flocon qui par rapport au reste de la photo le met vraiment en valeur.
Vraiment superbe...
Félicitations !
