Ice Crystals

Now spring is coming it’s not so depressing to post photos of the cold. Here are some photos of the icicles in my Nan’s garden from Decemeber…

Taken with my Nikon D300 and 105mm VR macro lens. The I managed to get the shed window angled behind my composition (without disturbing the bird food holder – almost a miracle in itself) to create the black background of the first image. I popped up the on camera flash to add a little sparkle (even though it was sunny) which you can see better in the furthest icicle in the second photo (and the shed slightly in the bokeh behind).

I hope you like my foray into the cold landscape.
