365-264. Sept. 21, 2009. Living in a snowbelt area, I'm used to seeing snowflakes coming at me sideways, with gusts of wind reducing visibility to near zero. Those days are around the corner again, but I got a taste on my walk this morning. No, fortunately they're not snowflakes, but thistle seeds. They were so thick along part of Black Ash Creek Trail that I was covered in them. I took the opportunity to slow down my shutter speed to try to capture the sense of movement. No special Photoshop plugins were used in processing. I boosted the clarity and contrast to try to separate out some of the details.
