More Random iPhone Photos

I have a more phone shots to share. Actually, I have hundreds of phone shots I could share, but I will be cautious as to how many I share last once. 

Frost on a window always gets my attention. The delicate designs are fascinating.


I have seen this spot many times, but it wasn't until this day, That I noticed how pretty it could be. The frost helped as well.


Every year I tell myself, I won't get another Amaryllis blub, but every year around November, I can't resist the temptation and usually get a couple of different colors. Those huge, bright flowers do add interest to an otherwise dull season.


Many years, I have also been gifted a Poinsettia plant and when I have captured so many images of the red leaves,I turn my attention to the the detail on the green leaves. The sunlight was hitting this leaf just perfectly, so out comes my phone and here is the result.


Forgive for posting too many photos of the frost at my heated birdbath. It's much like frost on the windows, but this is  more dimensional. Such super delicate works of art!


This is my prayer:

I want a beautiful life, Father.

Please produce Your fruit in me that I might live a life that points others to You.

The first shot looks like a plane is flying over a giant snowflake!

OH, these are such wonderful photos! You see such beauty in everything. I love all of them...and of course I love the amaryllis blossom and the poinsettia leaves too. That is something I can truly relate to here. We don't get to see the frost here, but occasionally there might be enough to capture a picture or two...I just have to be up early enough and looking for it before the sun melts it. Amazing details in the frost. Only God could design something so intricate in every detail. Love this. Thank you for sharing with us.

You could never post too many frost pictures...they are all different and all so beautiful! Those trees are so beautiful, too.

George said...

Wow!! You can certainly make me see the beauty of winter. I would never get tired of your pictures of the frost.

Ginny Hartzler said...

First, you have NOT posted too many photos. And even if you did, I never get tired of seeing your beautiful frost shots. God's art for sure. You excel at it! I did not know a green leaf could be so gorgeous and intricate!

I love the two frost photos.

MadSnapper said...

each time I see your frost I wish I could see some on a window to see if I see what you see. but today we are 39 degrees and I do not want frost, way to cold for this Florida girl. I will just view yours. the leaf is amazing and made me think the same thought I have had for 20 years. I never saw details until my first digital camera in 2002... now i can't unsee the details

Lovely photos as always. We have had it cold but not as cold as you. Temps around 10f but sunny today. There's no frost on our windows. And just about an inch of snow. I used to live in Canada and I haven't forgotten the huge snowplows or the high banks of snow. 💖

I really like the veins and sunlight catching the beauty.

Marie Smith said...

That last photo is pure artistry. Love it!

You certainly have mastered using your iPhone to capture God's beautiful handiwork, large and small, and pointing the way for others to appreciate it!

All the pictures are beautiful but my favorite is number two!

Wonderful shots, as always. That first one is just amazing. Can you imagine how long it would take a human to create a formation like that? And nature does it so easily. Thanks, Ruth, for sharing.

Those are beautifully taken.

Such lovely images of the frost on your window and birdbath, Ruth. I too admire the feather and lace-like formations frost makes. The poinsettia leaf detail is also beautiful! It is snowing heavily here today. Have a wonderful week.

Barb said...

I love those frost butterflies! The poinsettia leaf is an amazing shot. I missed having an amaryllis this year - yours is gorgeous.

Hi Ruth, I came to answer your question. We did get the old Shingles vaccine from many years ago. And the doctor said that may make this attack not quite so bad. But my doctor had been nagging me to get the newer vaccine, which is much more effective. But every time we tried to get the vaccine, we ran into roadblocks. So we never got the new one. I should have tried harder, and am sorry I did not.

Lorrie said...

Your frost images are so beautiful, Ruth, and I love seeing all the different forms frost can take.

Just saw your comment over on "Let your light shine" blog, where she has Shingles.

You wondered about getting the Shingles vaccine...

My husband and I got it, some time ago. After reading other bloggers who got shingles.

So, naturally, I hope you do.

Gentle hugs....

Debbie said...
