As I drove my Victoria to school on Friday morning, I was awe struck at the beauty that had been created while we all slept. Everything was coated in a glorious thick blanket of frost and it truly sparkled like diamonds. Living in Alberta, frost and snow are of course a regular occurrence during our winter season, but there was something different about this one. It was one of those times that I wish I had my camera at my side.
The trees that line the road to school were like a scene out of a story filled with ice castles and magic; even the ugly orange construction fence in the school parking lot had transformed in to a beautiful white sparkling piece of art. When I got home, I grabbed Victoria's camera and went for a walk in my neighborhood to capture some of nature's art, but the sun had been up for awhile by then and it was all starting to melt. Sigh... I managed to get a few shots that I can use in backgrounds for my digital collage, but the camera just couldn't capture the beauty that my eye was taking in. Ok - maybe it's not the camera - it's the person behind it! ;o) Victoria would have done a much better job! Anyway, thought I would share a couple with you.
This past week has found me busy with the business end of things, this coming week will be full of creativity, well... that's the plan anyway. We all know how that works; life gets in the way of the best of intentions sometimes. ;o)
