SundayStills: Winter Pictures
From one of the hottest places on earth… a post about the coolest stuff on earth. A photo which i took in Liverpool from the very first winter i enjoyed in England.
Snow is frozen water. It is made up of tiny, six-sided ice crystals, which form on dust particles inside very cold clouds. The crystals grow in size and join together. They become heavy and drop down through the clouds for us to enjoy the snow fall and decorate the mother nature around us.
Ever wondered why snow is white?
It all has to do with air. Objects get their color by absorbing or reflecting different wavelengths of light. Snow and snowflakes are ice crystals mixed with air molecules. The air gaps between crystals, along with the crystals’ complex shapes, bounces the light beams around so much that all the wavelengths eventually get reflected out, giving it a white color.
