You know it’s cold when the stream freezes!

"Stone Cold" (Frozen Stream With Rocks) Nikon D300, 105mm, F/8, 1/30s, +.3EV, ISO 640

I can’t decide if I see an image in the ice…do you?

I overwinter our unheated bird baths by covering them in black plastic. Water can still collect, but since there is some air between the plastic and the stone (or ceramic), the subsequent expansion-as-it-freezes doesn’t crack the bowl. 

And, yes, I learned that gem the hard way. 🙂  

Frozen Still

“Frozen Still” (Leaves Frozen in Ice) Nikon D300, 70mm, F/8, 1/30s, -1.0EV, ISO 640

In the back of my mind I’d always hoped to capture something just like this shot but could never have dreamt of finding it laid out so perfectly!

Woke up to the first hard frost of the season and eveything looked like it had been coated with white sugar. Sweet!

"Sugar Coated" (Cranesbill 'Rozanne' aka Hardy Geranium) Nikon D300, 105mm F/2.8G macro, Manual Mode, F/10, 1/160s, ISO 640, Built-in Front Curtain Flash, -1.0EV

A dip below freezing temps didn’t seem to bother the cranesbill blooms one bit. Not too surprising… they don’t call these ‘Hardy Geraniums’ for nothing!
