Macro Snow

So we had some really neat chunky snow flakes the other day. I ran out early in the morning and nabbed a few macro photos while the wind was low. The trusty 105mm Nikkor and the stalwart Nikon D800 were the weapons of choice for this hunt – maximum resolution and resolving power! 

It’s incredible to see the intricacies of frozen water up close like this. I have included a square cropped image here of the larger picture to see more of the detail. 

It’s pretty wild stuff to see!

The “ball” images above here are frozen chokecherries. They are almost the same image, the only difference is lighting. On the darker blue image I lit the chokecherry with a flashlight in close  and feathered a bit to give the image some shape and specular highlights – which we didn’t get with the flat cloudy ambient light. #Sparkle ๐Ÿคฉ

In this block of images you can see the crops of the above. The creative genius of God on display for our viewing pleasure! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™
