18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Faces All Around Snowflake

Captured on February 9, 2020, at 1:32 p.m. The gentle afternoon snowfall brought large, well-designed snowflakes to my front yard. As I pictured this snowflake, I noted six incredible points of the snowflakes connected with six little faces looking back at me. The faces form the circle around the starred center of this unique and delicate snowflake. It is fascinating what can sometimes be seen when we look closer at the tiniest forms of nature.
