Early Spring Photos,It Will Return Again

This is looking out of my kitchen window during a heavy snowfall . While walking at the lake in early spring I noticed the ice crystals at the edge of the water.The make some interesting patterns.
Standing at attention!
I took this picture at an elementary school near my house.
Reeds reflected in the rippling water of a favorite birding spot.

Ruth,

Really loved the trees. What a cool and beautiful shot. I am sure the kids run by them everyday without a care. Some things can only be appreciated with, well maturity. Great photo's!

Beautiful photos... I really like the lines of those trees standing so straight up!
I imagine it must be getting pretty cold over there... the arctic air is starting to settle in over the Canadian provinces just about now.
Keep warm!

The 'standing at attention' photo is priceless. The mention of the proximity near the school can't help but make me think of all the kids lined up ready to come inside the school after recess. Wonderful!
