Quite the creative close up! Jennifer is behind the lens: “I took this in my backyard after a heavy wet snowfall in late April. My fuji camera is waterproof, freezeproof and lets me get really close without worrying about the elements. I managed to capture the trasnsormation of snow into water droplets”.
DID YOU KNOW? Some days, we can see snow melting right before our very eyes. Warm air and the warmth of the sun are the primary factors that turn the white stuff into water. But the wind, the speed of the wind, and the temperature of the wind also play a huge part in melting snow. Those who live in southern Alberta know that all too well! You may have heard of Chinook winds. The origin of the word Chinook comes from our First Nations People – it means “Snow Eater” - the snow literally evaporates in the dry wind. And talk about a warm up! Chinook winds have pushed a temperature from −20 °C to PLUS 10°C in just a few hours.
