snowflake in the sky


if you click on this photo, you can see the snowflake more easily.



taken wednesday night sometime around 4:30 pm somewhere on jericho turnpike in mineola. I was noticing the light in the sky was such a beautiful blue and then I noticed the pretty lit up snowflake. can you see it? I am glad to see one town has thought to leave their holiday decorations up a little longer than most. they sure are cheery.

to see more beautiful skies from all around the world, thanks to Klaus & his team, sandy, ivar, wren, and the fishing guy, please go here.

I like the lights against the pure blue sky.

Really nice picture. Leave it to Mineola to leave their Christmas decorations up through January. I'm sure it's pretty, but personally, I don't want Christmas to last quite this long.

Michele said...

Yep, I saw it!! Neat idea with the snowflake. That's a big one! =)

Don't remind me — I still have some Christmas decorations out! But I do love that snowflake — very pretty.

Yes, it's a pretty snowflake against the sky. No reason a snowflake has to be only for Christmas. I'd have no problem seeing it up awhile longer.

That is a lovely photo, perfect for Sky Watch Friday to share little glimpses of the sky from your place with all the twinkling little stars.

It is indeed a lovely sky. And I love snowflakes so what an added treat too. Plus it's sort of nice to still see seasonal lights up. :) Thank you for stopping by Seguin and leaving the comment! It's always nice to make a new friend. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful image, Lily!
But I really don't see the snowflake in the sky!!! (Perhaps it's my screen fault)

Hi tr3nta, & Pietro & for anyone else who has missed it, the snowflake is the light on the pole brightly lit next to the little house.It's at an angle so I can see how you might miss it.

Great shot. Taking down Christmas decorations has to be one of the most depressing tasks - nice that you still have some around to enjoy.
