This weekend Andy had a basketball tournament in Buhl Idaho. He had a game at 10, 12, 2 and 6. With games this close together we really could not jump in the car and head back home because the minute we got home we would have to turn around and drive back to Buhl. So, we stayed in Buhl the whole day. Since we had some time between games, I decided to try out our new digital camera that we got for Christmas from Grandma Carter.

Buhl is not the most exciting place to take pictures but the day we were there was very unique. We have had fog in the Magic Valley for a few days now. In Twin Falls the fog usually vanishes by the afternoon and it warms up to 40 degrees. However, in Buhl, the fog had hung around and never dissipated. So, if you look on all of the trees and even the grass, there are ice crystals that have formed on every pine needle and blade of grass.

I know that I'm not a professional but some of these photos turned out really nice. Here are some of my favorites. If you like them, please feel free to download them and use them as backgrounds on your computer. *wink*

A very cool tree I found in the park near the school. Don't mind the garbage can in the bottom left corner.

Very symmetrical fence line that caught my eye.

My second or third attempt at getting a very close up picture of pine needles.

NIce eye, Clint. If you send me the tree picture, I'll edit out the garbage can.

Great pictures. I love it when it ices over like that. My favorite picture is the pine needle one.

What a great picture of the disc golf basket at #3! That park is where dad and us boys get together for frisbee tourneys. It never looks so good in the summer.

What a perfect day to take pictures. I also love the days when the hoarfrost is of the trees and grass. It's like a fairyland. Good job Clint.
