Yes very true, I now notice a lot more than I used to, not just looking for the next "shot" but have got into the habit of opening my eyes. My wife says I am like an old crow, with my head bobbing in each direction as I proceed, I am sure it is a term of endearment. Fantastic shots of the snow flakes.

Well said... and very true. You just get used to looking at everything around you all the time. In particular the light... how amazed I can be sometimes when the light is just so perfect.

I also found soon after starting stock photography [ maybe before ] that everywhere lies beauty, and gives many many creative opportunities. Visiting the same place twice or three times or more is never boring............. only to dumb uneducated minds. David.

Thanks Brett, Zenonk and Clearvista :)

@David - kids help force us to notice things we haven't paid attention to in a long time, but I agree that we can change our own minds and keep ourselves noticing ! Curiosity is one of the best character traits you can possess.

So true. It also give you a push to shoot more and be constantly scanning for images that you might have otherwise walked past.

Driving and looking for "interesting snowflakes on the window of the car" is very dangerous. :-)
