Photo Contest Time

It's that time again! Photo Contest Time! Woo Hoo! Write From Karen is hosting another photo contest. If you'd like to enter there is still time. You have until tomorrow afternoon at 4:00 p.m. Central Time. This photo contest theme is: Winter!

This really is my favorite time of the year. Unfortunately living in Texas you don't get the winter that I am used to...remember I'm not from here...I'm from Kansas and Missouri and have also lived in Wisconsin and Illinois so I know WINTER! Luckily this winter we had the Arctic blast hit us. It was fun watching all the native Texans try to keep warm and drive on the ice (I know better...stay inside). But it gave me a chance to go out and actually get a winter photo. There is a church close by to me that has a fountain (remember they aren't used to temperatures below freezing) that remains on all the time. Yes, they kept it on during these frigid temperatures too. It made for the most beautiful flowing ice fountain! I love how the ice looks like it is actually moving down the fountain just as it would have had it not been frozen. At the very top you can see that the water is still on and just adding to it's glory.

Voting will begin tomorrow afternoon and I'll remind everyone...quite head on over to her blog to vote for my photo.

Well, well, well. You did it again. I've been trying to decide what photo to enter in the contest, but nothing really stands out to me as a great photo. Your photo far outstrips anything I have. Like usual. =D

I think I'll sit out this time and support you - it's the best photo entered so far!

Amazing photo, amazing perspective and coming from a place where we never see frost - the idea its so cold to freeze water like this is mind blowing.

I agree - best of the photos I've seen so far.

According to the poll results, you are getting lots of votes. Rightfully so, must have given you a 'back home' feeling, hope you have warmed up by now. Michigan hasn't.
