on cloud nine

snow capped flower

While most of our snow has melted, I loved photographing its beauty. When I spotted this, albeit dead, snow capped flower, I couldn't resist getting a shot. There's something hauntingly beautiful about winter. Shriveled up leaves, dead flowers, crinkled leaves...as odd as it may sound, I love it at times.

On a side note, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that forty eight of y'all linked up last week! It made my day to see that so many people wanted to share joy through images. While I really did try to comment on everyone's entry, I failed. Miserably. So if I didn't comment on your photo, I apologize!

Is there a photo that makes you happy? One that warms your heart or tells a funny story? One that puts you on cloud nine? Here's your chance to share it! 

Just put up a post on your blog containing one photo that you've taken. You can add as much or as little text as you would like along with it. After writing your post, come back here to link up - you have until Thursday at 9:59pm CST to do so. Don't forget to link back to me so others can join in, whether it be via the above button or a link. :) And remember to visit others' photos as well!
