Angels


Even angels need a bit of fun; a moment’s respite; a return to childhood. Letting go of her responsibilities for just an instant, she flies down, letting her wings rest briefly in the light January snow. A laugh, bell-like; no, more like chimes, spills out into the wind. Then, as swiftly as she arrived, she’s gone. Only the snow angel remains - and that only ‘til the wind or sun or next snowfall makes us wonder, was she ever really there...

No disrespect but how long did it take you to get back up out of the snow ;o) I did one a few years back and we laughed like drains as I repeatedly fell over, and then one by one pulled everyone else over... being frowned upon by my guardian angel all the while

Hi All -
I haven't made a snow angel myself in years, but I remember it as good fun. Roo's right though about the challenge of getting up without ruining the effect you've just created! As for crop circles, there's no way to get a sense of the true scale from the photo, but this snow angel must have been made by a child. It was quite small and the brisk winds were already beginning to fill the edges in with the fluffy snow.

That's SO the kind of thing I'd do if I lived where it snowed!! Wonder if it'd work in the sand on the beach??

Hi Sue -
You and Jake should head to the beach, give it a whirl and report back! Sunny beach photos will be most appreciated here in the Northern Hemisphere!
