|"Snowy Tree at Dawn"|
Nevertheless, I do sometimes spot interesting natural objects and other "found art" that get "captured" and preserved by my camera. Occasionally the snow makes a rather ordinary thing look much more interesting than usual. Here are a few of my favorites:
These frozen crabapples were on a volunteer tree growing behind my chicken coop. (Either it grew from the compost, or a seed was dropped there by a bird.) The tree was already there when we moved here in 1997, and every year it produces a crop of 1-inch fruits that hang on the tree all winter. When spring comes, lots of birds enjoy the mushy thawed-out apples, including robins and cedar waxwings.
