der.... its so obvious, the snow is on either the lense or on a window thats being looked through.

I'm glad everyone is playing this game.

The first entry was right on the money. This is a reflection in a car windshield that has frost on it.

This is not snow nor is it on the camera and we aren't looking through any window.

I like it. I hope you all come back soon.

it's a dead tree with ice crystals on the lens.

I don`t know why anon, above, has it in his head that the crystals are on the lens- it`s so obvious that if they were they would show up as shadows, whereas they are in fact reflecting light into the lens (they look bright enough to me) so there must be at least some space between the lens and the crystals. ~You can bet this guy didn`t pay much attention in physics at school, unlike anoraks such as I....
