Ice

Yesterday morning, the trees and plants in our backyard were coated with tiny ice crystals which reflected and refracted the rising sun in interesting ways. I was fascinated by the crystals falling, snowlike, from the trees as they were warmed by the sun. It was impossible to catch the effect with a camera, so I opted for some closeups.

Those first two images bowled me over. Stunning.

Thanks, Dave. I read somewhere that a camera helps you see things when you don't have a camera, or words to that effect. I find myself looking at the world in a different way and seeing details I would have missed before my interest in photography was rekindled recently.

great work David.. I had a hard time getting the right exposure for that Falling Frost shot. Direct into the sun was my only option and I had very little time as it was falling fast.

I agree with you with the way we see things
