Lines in the snow by Nyctophobia Lines in the snow by Nyctophobia
We don't really get snow here. But we've been getting alot of rain lately. And .'. a lot of snails. I just like to sit outside after a storm and imagine that they are travellers in Antarctica, and that by chance every few miles they meet in the wake of a blizzard. The world is endless and white.

Caitlin was having a smoke and said 'here, get this matchbox in for size' so there it is. Two tiny snails in the wake of the world. So vast. So endless. So fresh and clean.

I want it to rain again.

Maybe you'll never look at lines in the snow the same way again.




This goes out to ~crazysheepie ;p

This is FANTASTIC. I love snails. I used to have about 4 or 5 water snails that ended up getting HUGE from being no smaller than a dime. They grew to like, the size of a baseball, AND THEN SOME =)

either way, great picture. Composition, placement, all of it. Awesome.

Damn, they're puny. It kinda looks like the one found it's way out of Antarctica and the other is the next fool to enter it.

They may be small and slow.......but wouldn't u be if u were carrying ur house?
