You Capture - Water

I was so excited when I found out the subject of this week's You Capture would be water. It was perfect. We were finally finishing the renovation of our water garden so I would be able to show pictures of the hopefully beautiful finished product. The one thing I knew for sure was that I wouldn't be posting pictures of Striebel Pond since I posted a zillion of those last week.

So here are my 'water' pictures - all taken at Striebel Pond. You know the old saying, "the best laid plans......"

These are all SOOC. No editing. I don't have time. I've got a water garden to finish.

For lots of beautifully creative water shots, visit Beth at Ishouldbefoldinglaundry.

  2. Oh, what beautiful light and subtle color in these! My favorite is the first shot of the swan family. Beyond the light and color, I love the ripples circling around them.

    Have fun working on your garden!

  14. So beautiful. I love the heron! Stunning.

    I went to the lake too, to get some pictures. And I saw a stunning sight: a group/herd/flock/pack (???) of pelicans swimming by. By the time I got my camera out they were too far away to photograph.

    Btw: pelicans are RARE in Alberta. So I was super-bummed. (And may have cursed the fates a little bit.)

  15. Oh too funny, I was wondering what you had up your sleeve bummer it didn't work out. (I was in Canada all week and just got to check this out.)

    I like the crane shot!
