Diamond dust




W
oke up to an overcast Saturday morning after a heavy overnight snow. Had the blinds drawn when Mr. Sun started peering through and gave the white mass a grand sparkle. Then it happened, when the skies started clearing up...





Diamond dust. Bear taught that the phenomenon takes several prerequisites to happen, so you've got to be really lucky to catch one. Like my first encounter 5 years ago, the glamor yesterday lasted for a good half an hour. The garden looked as if dusted with shimmering diamonds descending from the air, just... magical. And we looked on, awed by the Maker of all things magnificient.


Oh, the shot isn't mine.
