Frosty

Thank you, Lord, for the frosty hemlock branches outside the kitchen window.

Our hemlocks delight us year-round; but in Winter, most of all!

This week's 52-Week Challenge is to shoot in full manual mode. I always do that, so I added the extra challenge of shooting with my macro lens. I often struggle with macro's tiny sliver of focus, and today was no exception; but I enjoyed the practice and paying close attention to the effects of various f-stops. Even with using Live View, I didn't capture what I'd envisioned; but the image still conveys the frosty hemlocks I'm enjoying this morning, so into my project it goes!
I LOVE it

This is super, FAV. I feel your pain on the "tiny sliver of focus" on the macro lens. I should follow your example and practice.

I'm glad you enjoyed my frosty hemlock branch. We're getting snow again today, and temperatures are plunging. No complaints, though — I love every one of our four seasons! Thanks again, all. I really appreciate your support! :)
