It looked like Siberia yesterday. Good thing I took up my cam and went outside. I didn’t have to go far to find treasure. Oh no. Being very sore from the gym, I really was not up for a hike in deep snow. That and I had to be out of this house by 3:30 in the afternoon.
Was I up to the challenge? You bet! I captured pictures that while editing, my mouth was hanging open in awe. Two are extremely cropped and I’ll point out which ones. One of the extremely cropped images was taken through a glass window. The one you just saw, the very first one in fact, is the picture shot through my living room window.
This image would have been so much better IMO if I could have eliminated all branches from a tree closer to our house. My knowledge in PS does not include taking out portions of a picture, (yet).
The ice crystal I found took the cake. I was editing an image of a dead flower pod with snow on it when something caught my eye. I asked … what do I have to loose? So I cropped it in close, eliminating a good nine-tenths of the picture. And voila!! I actually was able to bring that ice crystal clearly in! That is where shooting at ISO 100 comes in handy and having a full frame camera. (wink) You’ll see that ice crystal in the last picture below.
Now for the show! Are you ready to view (hopefully) the last of the white beauty for this year? I hear rain is forecasted so even though yesterday looked like Siberia, today will not. A-hem! Take a look at what I found!
Now do you have a concrete idea just how tiny this image is? Yes, that is one very small ice crystal! Unbelievable I was able to crop this in! Wow!
All pictures taken with my Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro lens except for the first one.
