..In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee and will look up....Psalms 5:3

I was not quite satisfied with the first version of this formation that I uploaded and I deepened the contrast and converted it into monochrome. I cropped in a little closer also.

Each of us may see something different in a snow formation. I see a profile of a lady with her head turned upward..and the eye is closed as though she is in prayer. It is fun to stretch ones imagination. I used to love to watch clouds for what I could see in the formations and nature is filled with natural art.

Today it is bitterly cold outside with dangerous wind chills for February 1st, but it warmed my heart to find yet another formation made from nature..

The facial snow formations that I posted yesterday and the day before have disappeared already, from wind changing its appearance and this one will probably be gone by tomorrow also but I especially love this one for the meaning that I can see from it..


An angel of prayer
Can be found anywhere
To give, God thanks,
E'en in snow banks
For us to see them there.

    This monochrome version really does help to see the "facial" formation!

    I think you definitely improved the details by changing it to mono. With the other version, the angel was better seen in the thumbnail, but in this version the detail is perfect, right down to the eyelashes!

    I see both a beautiful angel, and an eagle's head here. This is a very spiritual image, to me, and the texture and lighting is just remarkable. Beautiful!
