Spring Scenes

Spring is a time to look for water run-off almost anywhere.
I knew of an easily accessible ditch, that has water in it in spring. I don't know what it is, but I love watching that running water.

It may not be a lot of water, but it sounds good and looks pretty.


Since it was early in the season, there was still some ice in the water. That made for some interesting photos.


It doesn't take a lot of water to create some foam on the water.


A friend sent me a picture of this and encouraged me to go have a look at it.
It was too far away, for me to be sure of what it was, but it looked like it was a buildup of foam as the water came through a culvert.Since it was still on the chilly side, it may have frozen as it built up.Whatever the case, I thought it was unique.
Just to clarify, these are photos I took.


Off to the side was a lower structure.I could see little pieces of the foam being blown off it.

 
These pictures may not be the most spectacular, but I enjoyed these sights.
The key to seeing beauty, in my mind, is to be open to the unusual.

God creates the beauty,
my camera and I are witnesses.

  10. Isn't it wonderful to be able to see the beauty in the world around us, in such distinct and unusual ways! I love the foamy culvert pictures, very intriguing, and great captures! I love little streams too, and it is fun to see them in the early spring, I agree! May the blessings of the Lord be with you, dear friend!

  17. The Crocus or Pasque Flower in your header is one of my all time favorites. It was always fun to see them in the Bighorns. And the water formations are fun. I will post one I took a couple years ago on the creek. Blessings this Good Friday and Happy Easter. Diane
