Photo Monday – Icy

Each time I visit my parents, I bring my camera. I’ll go to different spots depending on my mood. This time, it was cold. -20 degrees Celsius cold. (That’s roughly -5 Fahrenheit.) I wasn’t going to go far and I wasn’t going to bring a bunch of lenses to switch around with bare fingers. There’s a wooded area at the end of the backyard. I figured, correctly I might add, that the woods wouldn’t feel as cold. I was well bundled up but I had fingerless mitts on. I never needed the gloves in my pocket.

I picked my 100mm macro lens and I’m happy I did. The stream was mostly frozen and had some gorgeous ice formations but I didn’t feel confident enough to venture onto the ice. I had to take my pictures from further. Lying down on the snow, I could hear the water rushing under the ice.

When I could get near, I tried to find the sunny spots so I could get close ups of the ice and snow. The crystals were amazing! It’s making me want to do extreme macrophotography, enlarging crystal formations as much as I can…

When I came back from the woods, I thought I might go down the road and see if there were any cool pictures to take in the field. That’s when I realized how right I’d been to go to the woods. The wind wasn’t strong but it was enough to make me nope right out of there. I just caught this flower basking in the light near the house and I went in.

I did not venture out for pictures the next day. (I did take the camera out when the kids played in the snow but I was only out for, like, 30 minutes max.)
