Looks like misplaced shaving foam on the railings, Elizabeth.

Really like the sunlit snow waves, behind.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I wouldn't use it - it'd be pretty c-c-c-cold!!!

Thank you Ray!

This is good... wow what a great composition. Love the back-light here.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you so much Astrid! I'm so pleased you like it... it was a beautiful snow!
Good eye Elizabeth... great backlighting on the snow... someone took some time making this sculpture of the barbed wire around the fence posts....petersmile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thanks Peter! A common sight out West! smile

I am still surprised that you get snow like that where you live - shows how ignorant I am, Elizabeth
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I think you're not the only one, Lisl! Others have mentioned the same. And in fact, we've got a winter storm starting up that's going to bring us 12-18" in the next 3-4 days. Not what the East Coast is suffering, but a nice, lovely snow, bringing much needed moisture. Our snow mountain should get about four feet!
*** I forgot to mention - the butterfly in Frank's Friday photo was a Blue Morpho!

A form of unintended art isn't it
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: I thought it was kind of interesting how the snow just tuck on top of the railings like that!
Well spotted and captured Elizabeth! I really like the textures contrast here.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Richard! I thought it was an interesting sight!

You have caught the light perfectly here Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Chad!
I have said this before and will surely say it again...I'd LOVE to see this kind of snow once more!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It is so pretty, isn't it! We have a storm moving in that's going to bring 12-18" of snow to Flagstaff, and up to four feet on our ski mountain! Yippee!
That's a fine example of nature as an artist
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Yes - she does a great job!

Wonderfu; looks like a proper sculpture. Isn't nature wonderful (well, with a little help from a ranchhand).
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Alan! It does kind of!
Yes, I love how you can find barbed wire along fences all over the west like this!

I think of resting cats bathing in the wintersun!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh that's a really good one Philine! Others have seen a polar beat, a whale, and a seal! smile

Barbed wire and snow - great sculptural combination.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Unexpected, and pleasing! Thanks Mike!
You don't have nearly enough snow. Want some?
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ha!!! I keep saying the moronic mega rich need to stop pushing the Keystone Pipeline (we've already got five leaky ones running from Alaska to the gulf)- and build a WATER pipeline from the over-wet, prone to flooding East to the parched, going up in flames West! smile Actually - we're looking forward to a little storm over the next 3-4 days that should bring 12-18" to Flagstaff, and up to four feet to our ski mountain! YAY!

The snow on the top rail of fence looks like a polar bear sleeping, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh I like that one! Others have seen a whale, a seal, and two cats!
Well spotted, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Tom!
snow sculpture
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Lovely isn't it!
The snow on the fence looks like it's taking a nap in the sun Elizabeth. Makes a nice picture
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much, Janet - I thought it was pleasing!
How on earth does that snow seal manage to balance on the top of the fence.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: smile I don't know - but it was really great, I thought!

It looks rather like a seal resting on the fence
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That's a good one too! It seems to have gotten imaginations going!
Funny how the shapes look nautical, sleeping seals, or perhaps a whale on top smile
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: It does take on an animal shape doesn't it!
What a nice find to share.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you!
