This past week week we had a few foggy days with cooler temps which usually creates a frosted wonderland. Although I did not have the chance to really take advantage of the phenomenon, I did capture a few images and went out a couple of days later to try macro photography on what was left of the frost.
I decided to experiment with a couple of my frost images, first layering the two images, then masking out part of the background and finally adding color to parts of the image. I may do more work with this technique in the future.
Feathery creatures skating across my attic window. Nature creates such amazing patterns with frost and I love finding them in my attic.
Once again it’s time to go play in the attic. My old windows have a talent for displaying amazing patterns of frost in the winter and I love taking my camera and macro lens up there to explore and photograph the resulting art. After a bit of interpretation on my part, the patterns take on a different look than when they are on the glass.

The detail that nature creates for our enjoyment is always a source of amazement to me. Frost and snowflakes are just two of the incredible ways winter manifests itself for our entertainment.
Winter writes a cryptic note, pretty sure it means more snow and cold.
Or it so sort of appears…

Due to having injured my back pushing my car out of a frozen divot, I have not been out shooting much lately. But that doesn’t mean I can’t find something to do, which includes checking my attic windows for frost patterns. Every year the patterns are a bit different and I enjoy exploring, capturing and tweaking the best of them.
My back is finally improving and soon I expect to be outdoors searching for new winter compositions.
