You capture, I capture

I'm doing something crazy. I'm going to start to (occasionally) participate in You Capture, a weekly photo challenge hosted by I Should be Folding Laundry. I've never done this before, I don't have a fancy camera; heck, I don't even have photo editing software beyond iPhoto (which doesn't count at all).

But, what the heck? I'm just going to jump in.

This week's challenge was Winter.

I wanted to get photos of the cardinals at my new birdfeeder (thanks Dad and Donna!) but I don't have enough zoom ability with my point and shoot to get close enough without scaring the birds away. But, while I was out trying to take that photo, I found a few interesting natural ice sculptures and patterns.

This ice has built up just under our downspout at the front of our house. It seems like an architectural miracle.

And then I found this tucked in behind the other one, just about a foot away.

And finally, as I was walking back inside, I passed our car and found this lovely pattern on the back windshield.

Happy winter everyone! Next week: Love around the house.

I think these are great! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your photos! I need to get back at YouCapture, too. I'm too wrapped up in pie :).

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being wrapped up in pie!

I love your pictures of winter. Just beautiful! So perfect. I am glad you are going to participate. It is fun to see the pictures of people from all over : ). Yours are very pretty.

My point and shoot was an awesome little camera. I upgraded this past Christmas, but mainly because my P&S was dying on me. I love your pictures! Especially the frost on the car window! I hope you participate more often.
