this or that thursday: frosty

Although we don't get below freezing too often in south Louisiana, we did a have a chilly 27* morning a few days ago. I was inspired to brave the cold by these gorgeous frost photos shared by Christina last week.

The first one was taken when these little green weeds were still in the shade.

Then the morning sun started shining right on us and the light got a bit prettier.


And the frost began to melt...



It's amazing what you will find all around you, if you just look very closely! These were all taken with my 100mm 2.8 macro lens at apertures of f/11 or f/13.




Now it's your turn to share what you've been up to with your camera! There are just a few rules.

  • submit the url of your blog post, not your home page
  • link up a photo that was taken by you
  • include a link back to my blog in your post (you can use the button or a text link if you prefer)
  • visit a few other blogs and leave some comment love 
Okay, just link up below!

  6. These are stunning! We only get snow when everything is brown and dead outside! Hope you're staying warm! If we're lucky we'll hit 27º today! Then more snow, winter finally found it's way to Boston!

  8. These photos are very pretty. Love the frost and those cute little droplets.

    I mentioned before not to worry about wasp when taking photos of them as I have never been stung that way. This time I was stung by several wasps because I accidentally cut away the leaf where the nest was built. It hurt badly for 5 min, then it was ok but swell badly the next day. Torture...

  27. Wow, wow, wow! These photos are GORGEOUS! Amazing job Deb. I'm glad you braved the cold that morning because these are fantastic! My favorite is the up close one with the one little droplet hanging off the blade of grass and the tiny rainbow that's formed behind it! And I love how there's a reflection of the grass in that droplet.

  43. And the dew drop?... That’s my fave. Beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
