Daily Deviation

Given 2006-02-28
Frozen Spirals shows us not only the beautiful textures of the winter, but also it's cruelty in the most gently way. I doubt snails survive a frost like that even when sun is looking upon them so warmly. In it's simplicity, a beautiful capture by =MushroomMagic ( Suggested by Astraea-photography and Featured by suzi9mm )

Wow, that really contrasts what the ocean's usually about. Usually it's warm enough that it's only raining, with not much frost at all. But I like it. ^^

I find myself wanting to see more of the shell in focus. Too much of the shell is blurred, but I want to see that detail of the frost included.
It is a good shot, but it could be better. :)
