Macro Monday - Freezing Fog

For Christmas, our daughter Amanda gifted us with a wind chime created from spoons. This morning it was festively decorated in natures white wrap as it hung on our patio.





I don't have a macro lens - but my canon rebel did an 'ice job!

Macro Monday is a weekly photographic celebration over at Lisa's Chaos. This is my first flight.

That's a very ice photograph. We have those kind of icy shots when the inversions stay for a while. Looks like a winter wonderland.

Carla said...

The frozen fog is such a cool thing to me. I know, I'm weird. But still, it' cool.

I love frozen fog. Here we call it horror frost. My parents live near the power plants and there is a lot of humidity in the air so they have it on all their trees. It's beautiful close up and far off.

The detail of the frost in your enlarged photo is wonderful. The way the crystals grow is fascinating.

Lovin' Macro Mondays,

After reading the information, I may have different views, but I do think this is good BLOG!

Rime icing (the given name for this stuff I'm told) is always good camera fodder. It can actually get several feet -- or even yards -- thick in some climates (which is a pretty spectacular sight, but I wouldn't want to go through what I'd have to go through to capture it!)

A macro lens is nice to have (I would assume, I don't have one either) but as you've demonstrated here, it's not a requirement. Long-ish focal length on a close subject will do the job nicely.

I love the quiet feeling of this shot. I think it's probably the delicacy of the crystals that gives it that quality.

Lori said...

That is so cool....great shot. Happy WW and thanks for stopping by:)

Nature is beautiful.
