My fingers and my face are numb, but I couldn't pass up the chance to play today.
We may still get snow. Maybe even some ice. Considering the weather this last year, either wouldn't surprise me at all. What we won't be seeing again, or at least I hope we won't as green things are starting to poke out of the ground, are the crazy low temps required for me to be… Continue reading Last Bubble Of The Season
I wasn't going to go out. It was still stupidly cold. But... it was flurrying a bit and those flakes were the perfect kind to try and get actual snowflakes and the sun was out a bit and... of course I went out. It really was kind of perfect conditions to get snowflake shots. The… Continue reading Oh So Flaky!
Under normal circumstances, there isn't any glass in this house that manages to form ice crystals. Mostly because everything is well insulated and the indoor temps are just too much for the ice to overcome. Apparently that isn't the case today with our front glass storm door. I think it must be in part because… Continue reading Visit From Jack Frost
Yesterday's attempt at getting some frozen bubble shots was pretty successful and I learned a few new things. One of the bigger things is that I really need to be wearing my reading glasses when I'm taking photos anymore. I struggle more and more often to see if I'm actually in focus or I have… Continue reading Frozen Soap Bubble
We are getting a really heavy snow storm today. Heavy for us anyway. Even better, it seems to be on the dryer side so that means I get some detail on the flakes. These aren't the really detailed crystalline flakes. These are more spiky, sharp flakes, but they are still cool to look at up… Continue reading New Year’s Snow
After playing with making my own frozen dinners for the kids, we tripped across a fun side effect. The lids developed ice crystals. I've tried a couple of times to get photos, but they melt so fast I always missed out. I finally manged it the other day. There ended up being a variety of… Continue reading Ice Crystal
I first experimented with taking photos of frozen bubbles last year. At the time, I was somewhat pleased by the results, especially because I'd never done it before. But, I didn't have my macro lens yet so what I got wasn't actually all that good. When I went to play again the other day and… Continue reading Frozen Bubbles
Today was perfect weather to play with ice bubbles. Between that and the also perfect snow we got with the crazy low temps, I loaded up on some amazing shots over the last couple of days, but I'm still going through them all. For now, here is one of my favorite bubble shots.
I'm having a blast playing with the new lens. Oh! The fun I'm gong to have. I am stupid giddy today.
