After being snowed/iced in for almost 2 weeks, Buffy and I headed to my rural property for a morning hike. I heard running water in the creek before we reached the ravine.
After “oohing and aahing” a bit, I ended up noticing the designs that snow falling from the trees made in the snow below.
The angle of the sun was just right to showcase them.
Snow melting contributed to their designs too.
My pictures didn’t do them justice. I didn’t know how to set my camera to compensate for the bright snow.
These discs measured 4-5 inches across.
The east-facing slope had less snow than the west-facing one did.
This last one measured over 12 inches from top to bottom and 3 or more inches tall. I couldn’t figure out how it formed. There were concentric oval “lines” and a slight depression in the center. Maybe it rolled and fell to the side, resulting in the design. Nothing made sense …
It had to be magic.
