Frosty Fun

This time of year, I tend to hibernate. Therefore, my poor camera gets neglected. I'm not a fan of the cold, my bugs have gone for the year, and I just don't get inspired like I do during the other seasons.

This year, however, I've got macro filters. This year, I hope to accomplish my first ever macro of a snowflake. This year, I hope to get inspired during the winter, rather than wish it away.

So, this morning, when there was some lingering frost and sunshine caressing said frost, the camera and I once again joined forces. I quickly realized that, I've got a lot to learn about photographing this time of year.

I will, however, practice,
and I will
learn.

Are you ready for Christmas? Do you have the toys for the tots, the bones for the dogs, the welding cable for the man in your life? I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season.

This is gorgeous, Misty! I love it, like a cross between a twig and tinsel.
Looking forward to more winter macros.

Wow! Great shot! Love it :)

Wow Misty, I think you did a real swell job here.... love all the detail in this shot. The tan colored background is even gorgeous and suits the branch and frost well -- what did you use for the background?! :-)

Nice shot! You're right...it is a bit different shooting in winter. Best way to learn is to shoot and shoot some more.

Great shot! I love those icy fingers pointing up.

Wow didn't think frost would look like that up close and personal.

That is a really nice shot. I am not a fan of photography in the winter either. But I think you are going to strive at this as you have with your bugs and critters in the past.
