A Frosty Day

I am having the same dilemma that some others are talking about.
When I look outside all I see is snow and therefore I am not taking many pictures.
Don't get me wrong,Jake and I have lots of pictures on the computer,
but I would like to post more recent pictures.
These are my most recent photos.
We had a small patch of frost on the window,and that gave me 
the chance to use the Macro lens again.
It is amazing to see the detail in these tiny frost feathers.
No human could paint such delicate beauty.
I would encourage you to click on these pictures to enlarge them.
The detail really shows up much better that way.
The final picture is the reason for today's title.

Take time to appreciate God's created world.

That is so amazing and incredible! I would love to have a macro lens but there is no chance of that happening any time soon.

Richard said...

Absolutely great macro pictures. They so do look like feathers.

Connie said...

Amazing!

Karin said...

Absolutely breathtaking! Those would make stunning postcards, or calendar photos. I want to download one for my laptop, lol! Thanks for sharing God's handiwork with us!

Diane said...

Absolutely gorgeous, Ruth. And you didn't even have to go outside. How does God do that anyway?

Peggy said...

Awesome detail on gorgeous shots! Wow!

Kerri Farley said...

Wow Ruth - truly God is a Great artist!! Love these!!

Unknown said...

WOW Ruth! These are truly fantastic and I marveled at every one!

I am having the same difficulty right now with no shooting because everything looks the same. Also, I've been sick and have ZERO desire to go out tramping through the snow looking for shots. I'm positive they are out there. They'll just have to stay until I'm feeling better. :o)

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Keep warm!

These macros are absolutely fantastic. You're right -- no human could make such wonderful patterns.

Ah Ruth - those are fantastic. (We're covered with snow too - way too much!)

Michele said...

They are so pretty. A really magical world in it's own in each photo. I like these. It snowed last night here but this winter has been not very very cold or snowy and I'm glad for a warmer winter for once. It usually it so cold here and I welcome a change once in a while...

Hugs

Becky said...

These are the most beautiful and artistic shots of frost I've ever seen! GREAT macro.

Wow...I thought those were real feathers at first! I know how you feel about the lack of things to take photos of. I'm in a real winter funk and hope this weather changes soon.

I never saw frost like this. I thought, honestly, it was a feather duster. I wondered why you were showing an old feather duster.

It was 9° F here this morning and the 12 inches of snow is harder than a brick.

They are absolutely beautiful! And they do look like very exotic feathers.
