Dancing is one of the most beautiful art forms. I love dancing whether it’s out with my friends having a fun time or when I took dance classes growing up from elementary school until I graduated high school. If you know me, you’ll also know I’m obsessed with watching dance shows on TV like Dancing with the Stars (p.s. a post about the new season coming later today!).
But things other than people can have dance-like qualities too so when I thought about what kind of picture I wanted to take or use for this week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post, which was “Dance“, I tried to think of other things in nature that dance around. On the first official day of spring it snowed a bit where I live. Nothing substantial, just some flurries and I woke up to a little dusting on the grass. The spring flurries made me think of how snow dances around in the wind as it comes down or as the wind blows it around. The photo I chose for the photo challenge was from the one blizzard we had this winter. The snow was coming down heavily and the wind was drifting it all over the place.
When the wind starts blowing the snow flakes dance and whirl around in the cold air and hit the windows.
The snow flakes either freeze onto the windows, slowly slide down, or the wind picks them up again so they can dance away to their next stop.
