Scavenger Hunt

1. Small things

Welcome to Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

Snow and cow hair on barbed wire fence.

2.  Illustration

Well, I cannot draw well so this outdoor skating rink was worked in Photoshop Elements to illustrate what some Canadian children (and their dads) do outdoors in February.

3. Valentine

Obviously the violet is from my archives! I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

4. Work of Art

Mother Nature is an amazing artist.

Window of Beauty

This ephemeral beauty on my sun room window melted when the sun came out.

I love PhotoShop Elements and all that is possible with that program. Window Beauty is beautiful indeed. Very nicely done.

Lowell said...

You outdid yourself with this post. Super job on each of these photos. That first pic: Wonder how the cow is feeling?

Tamar SB said...

Wow, these are gorgeous!! Love the illustration!

Judy said...

You did good with this. I'm reminded of my kids playing on the ponds when they were young with their dad.

Wonderful images! I really like what you did with Illustration. And the work of art is gorgeous. Love the frosty window! Well done, happy Sunday!

I can relate to the cow hair in the barbed wire fence but not the snow! Great photo, and I like the others too!

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Great collection. You certainly have an eye for the "ice art."

Sandra said...

Wow those last two are my favorites. I really like mother nature's work of art! Great job with the prompts!

thanks for explaining the cow hair - i was trying to figure out how pine needles were stuck to a fence. :)

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

i particularly love the first photo!

Christine E-E said...

ohhh. you've inspired me to explore photoshop to see if i can make an illustration like yours. love all the nature shots.

RedPat said...

I'll have to try that illustration function. Another great scavenger hunt!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Great job on the prompts! You even make cow hair on a barbed wire fence look great. I like the illustration of the skaters. I'm going to have to learn Photoshop elements.

Nicki said...

That first shot is mesmerizing in its details and I absolutely love how you took the picture of the skating fun and turned it into an illustration.

Ida said...

Wonderful wintery feel to your set. Loved the way you did the Illustration shot.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

You've got some wonderful submissions here for SHS. love the ice/frost art, although I know winters are not fun for y'all. How neat that you can create a sketch out of a photo in PSE.

Stephanie said...

Lovely finishing touches on your photos!

Sue said...

Those frost photos are marvelous!

=)

Honey Mommy said...

Love your frosty photos! The barbed wire fence is cool, as is the window. You did a great job on your illustration photo this week. Some of the prompts this week had me a bit perplexed, but you got them all right!

Jori said...

That barbed wire is so cool! Literally, right?? ;)

Lowell said...

Re your comment on Ocala: There's another Winn on the boat which you can't see. I don't know where the other Winn was or even if there is another Winn. The Winns may be trying to confuse people. It was very winndy playing golf today - maybe that was the doing of the 4th Winn?

LONDONLULU said...

How could I not love that work of art:) Beautiful all and love the way nature is showcased here, as usual!

Rose said...

Oh, wow, love that 'Work of Art" and Window of beauty!

Viola said...

Oh my.. what gorgeous photos of the snow crystals!! Both here and under! :)
and I like the painting in photoshop! how fun! I would like to do the same! :)

I nearly forgot it's Valentine's day, on thursday. Have a lovely Valentine's Day! :)

Michelle said...

Great shots of the beauty of snow and frost!

Randy said...

These are great. I would have to say that #4 is my favorite shot.

Barb said...

That cow hair on barbed fence is awesome! I love the etched window, too. Great findings for the hunt!

TheChieftess said...

Love the window shot!!!

Madge Bloom said...

Especially love that first snowy shot...

The frost on the window is beautiful. Amazing photo.

Leave It To Davis said...

Mother Nature is definitely an experienced artist!! And it seems you are, too!

Great photos. I really like the one of the people that looks like a drawing.

edenhills said...

Wonderful shots! I just love the barbed wire and hair covered in snow! Lots of beautiful snow shots this time!

Marie said...

Love your Scavenger Hunt photos! I especially adore that last shot for the perfect window!

Snowcatcher said...

I love the hockey players and the image enhancement, but that last shot of the crystalized vapor... awesome!

In love with this last window picture :)

The Artful Diva said...

Too cold for me, but it does look like fun.
