watching snow melt

A small drift of snow hanging off the edge of the roof caught my eye in the late afternoon sun.
It was warm enough to melt.

I waited patiently.


You can see the sun and trees reflected in the drip.

Another drip forming on another section of snow.
Do you see the sun sparkling in the drip?

These pictures were taken through the not very clean window with my camera on Auto.  
No Macro.  About 24 inches from the eaves.

I checked a few minutes later as clouds were coming in and the sun was gone.
The drip had frozen.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend.




  1. Amazing photography, Pamela! I love the reflection of the sun and trees in the drop.

  2. Very neat. Excellent work with your camera my friend.

  3. Wow- fantastic shots Pam!! Good eye to notice that litle drip!

  4. I love these sorts of photos that show how you have watched and been aware of a simple thing, which really is quite fantastic after all. There was a lot of melting yesterday with more today and the next, unless we get caught in a big wet snow.

  5. What patience you have Pam...
    Those are keepers for sure...almost like a small tear drop...
    And then.....frozen in time...
    That would make a fabulous card...and the words you could write inside....awesome!!
    Have a great day...
    Rainy,wet,dark,damp... 7degrees here...
    Think I'll post some cheery Flower pics!!!

    Linda :o)

  6. Wonderful.... you got me inspired to try that with my new camera!!

  7. We've had quite a bit of dripping over here too! I'm enjoying the warmth - for a little while at least! I like the cold too as long as I'm dressed well. I need to find a good down coat for playing around outside :)

    Happy weekend to you Pam!

  8. Great shots. We don't have snow here, but it is cold for the Island. Have a great weekend!

  9. Pamela, you should get those printed out, and put them in one of those long frames with all of the spaces in a row...that is simply amazing.


  10. Ahh.. the reward of patience.. Great photos! : )

  11. Great, fabulous, gorgeous photos. Who would think . . . well you did! Great post!

  12. Wow...your photos are absolutely amazing! Magazine worthy!
    Farmhouse hugs,

  14. Pamela
    You always have such beautiful photos! It's neat how you take the simplest things and create beauty.

  15. Beautiful and GREAT job getting the drops in mid-air! Nicely done!

  16. Lovely photos! How neat! What art from something so simple. About your wedding cake comment. I broke tradition in my English family when I got married in California and didn't want a fruit cake. I had white with chocolate between the layers. My Nana was scandalized!!!

  17. Hi Pamela! Oh, what amazing snaps! I love this! You're very patient to click just at the perfect time for that little drop.
    Tanks for popping in and have a great weekend.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  18. Hi Pamela, See what a small change in temperature can do. Fascinating photos. I really enjoyed studying them. I love your choice of pics. Have a super weekend.


  19. Very cool! Dirty windows? I am president of that club. :)

  20. Wow, Pam ... this pics are amazing. Thanks!

  21. What a great series of shots! It melted here on Thursday and Friday. Today it has turned cold again.

  22. This photos look rather like molten silver. You did a great job with them!

  23. Beautiful!! I love that series of shots. Your header is also so pretty. We are having a weird heatwave and I'm sitting here with the AC on and in shorts! Last year we had a bit of snow at this time.
