Queen Anne’s Snowcone Posted on February 2, 2012 by Sheila Creighton Posted in Flowers Tagged field, London, Medway Creek, photography, Queen Anne's Lace, snow, winter 28 Comments Last weekend, the fresh snowfall made for some nice winter images at the creek. This rather silly titled image shows the dried Queen Anne's Lace in an open field gathering snow. © Sheila Creighton 2012 Share this:ShareFacebookEmailTwitterPinterestLinkedInTumblrLike this:Like Loading...

I can just imagine my kids treating these as snow cones. Nice shot!
thanks – yes I can see that for sure! 🙂
Love it! The perfect snow cone.
thanks Joleen… now if there were flavours to add to it. ha ha.
It reminds me of a jewel being held in place with golden claws. Maybe the Queen’s orb! Yes! The Snow Queen’s Orb.
cool… yes it certainly has that look..
So beautiful glad you caught it before it melted.
thanks – yes I am sure the window of how long it stayed like that was very short… one big gust…
This photo is stunning, for a split second I thought it was cotton!
thank you – snow sure can look different.
hat a great photo, I love it.
thanks Maggie. it’s always nice to get out when there is fresh snow… especially powder.
This is delightful!
Well done ! This is a wonderful image Sheila. The hint of colour softens the emotional tone and plays into the whimsical title & association. It would be interesting to see a B&W version. I suspect the tone would become colder and the subject would take on a more abstract quality ( very modern sculpture/architecture).
thanks! I’m looking at getting a new camera with a good B/W feature as well it seems a lot of people recommend Silver FX. so maybe some B/W coming soon! I used to shoot a lot of B/W back in the days of film…
WOW! That’s really wild stuff! I’ll never look at the plant the same way again!
ha ha.. thanks e – snow changes everything… lots of white and blue these days.
“Snow changes everything.” Didn’t Andrew Lloyd Weber write a song about that?
not sure.. not a fan of the old Weber… but it sure does change everything visually. covers so much.. nature’s concealer!
Like sherbert. 🙂
🙂 – This is a great capture.
thanks nigel – timing is almost everything when dealing with powder snow. it was fun being out in it.

thanks – it’s wild what these so called weeds can tolerate.
