Cap Cake


This photo was taken in January.
The location was in Tyson's Corner, Virginia.
The "Take It!" came from seeing this nicely pruned bush have a snow cap that made it take on the look of a cupcake.  It was snow that made the topping thus the use of "cap" for the photo.  
No - it did not look good enough to eat - but it certainly was an eye catcher.  
The After Take: All who looked at this enjoyed it.  It seemed to fit into the fanciful category of "eye candy."
Here is hoping if you also live in a place where there is snow - that there may be some places where snow gathers that are unusual and take on a complement to that which it is covering.
Wherever you can - make snow a joy.
All the best
PS:  Very recently - we were passed by a school bus that had snow on its roof.  The sun had been out for a while and for some reason the roof of the bus had snow melt lines running at even intervals from side to side on the top.  I think the lines were formed by seams in the metal roof where heat from within had helped to melt the snow in these strips.  From the right angle - it looked as if the bus actually had a row of white pillows on the roof.  It was rather common - but somehow magical in that here were children unbeknownst to them -  on their way to school riding in a pillow topped bus - lol.
I could not get my camera out fast enough to catch it at the most advantaged angle to portray the best of the pillow illusion - but did get the below photo where one can catch a hint of the end of the melt lines as they reach from the top to the side of the bus.  
Traffic moved - and so did we - but the image lingers on.

    The first one really does look like it could be like pastry art or something. For sure see the cup cake in it.

    Weird that the snow doesn't blow off the top of the bus as it drives. Mustve been frozen on.

    I think I finally found a cup cake I would have reservations about eating.
