Night and Day Snow Orbs

Standard

We were on blizzard alert yesterday in Bisbee, Arizona. Schools took the day off and county offices closed early before we went to white out conditions in the afternoon. The early evening brought a bit of clear sky except for an occasional orb floating through.

I especially like the tiny blue orb perched above the wire fence we put up to keep the dog out of cat territory.

Later in the evening the snow returned, much to the interest of the orbs who mingled with the snowflakes. Takes a practiced eye to distinguish orbs from snow. The orbs are more translucent and in my neighborhood are often shaped like tear drops.

We have had more snow this year than in my previous 18 winters in Bisbee.

Some blues and pinks to brighten the night.

And, a tiny pink tear drop orb on the upper left edge…

After the drama of the blizzard of the night, a few Sun orbs to enjoy.

About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

    • Thank you for your comment, Jacquie. Could be that the blue orb on the fence is protective of the cats. It is a very contemplative view to watch as the changing light brings different areas into focus.
