One morning this week as I was watching some big fluffy snowflakes falling to the ground, I decided to see if I could possibly capture a macro shot of one of them.
I set a piece of black velvet on a snowbank, then used my phone and the Olloclip lens to zoom in on them. I kept trying to get one single flake but that was not to be. My hands were frozen, and as a matter of fact, so was the rest of me and after about 15 minutes I gave up. However, I was rewarded with a glimpse into an amazing world that is in plain sight, yet invisible to us.
It’s pretty incredible that these tiny, delicate crystals are what have completely blanketed our landscape and caused this …
This little shack is in a (mostly) abandoned farmyard not far from our home. I see it on my walk and every day I vow to go in there and get some photos. I’m a chicken when it comes to (trespassing) but I’m going to have to get over that. The other obstacle at the moment is that I’d be up to my butt in those tiny little crystals … which makes it hard to walk.
As I mentioned in an earlier post – you can see why I’m craving colour! I have got to go and get me some flowers! Poring over my summer files just isn’t cutting it.
Have a great weekend everyone!
