My Photography Post February 2019

I always love when I get to do a type of photography that I haven't done for ages and one type which I haven't shot in years is Macro Photography. Macro images were actually one of the first type of images I shot when I first got into photography. I remember taking a close up of a really tiny snail shell I found.

Recently I got the chance to borrow a friends Macro lens and so this lead to me doing some exploring with it to see what I could find. The days I got to shoot, were both either wet or snowy days and so perfect for Macro pictures.

So here are some of the images that I shot. You may notice quite a theme of droplets.


1. Icy Tree - 
Ok this is actually a twig, but I love how the Macro lens makes it seem bigger than it is and love the little snow crystals resting on it. 



2. Ice Droplet -
This was the tiniest piece of grass hanging from this thorny twig covered in snow. It took quite a bit of effort to get such a tiny strand in focus.


3. Water Droplet 
I spotted this tiny little droplet coming from this twig and just had to capture it. 



4. Moss Water Droplets 
I just loved the ice that had melted on this moss to form little water droplets. The Macro lens could get really nice and close up to get the detail of each bubble. 




5. Metal Drip -
I just loved this large drop of water coming from this piece of metal and the way the light was caught on it. I also love the detail of the metal itself. 


6. Droplets -
Again I loved the way the droplets all formed on this metal bench. Love how you can get such detail from such a little thing by using a Macro lens. 


7. Life amongst the snow -
I found the tiniest of little plants just starting to grow peeping out from the snow. 



8. Melting Snow - 
Love how you can see the snow that was on this leaf melting and just leaving a tiny bit of ice behind on the back of the leaf.



Which of the above photographs do you like the most and why?

  3. 7. Life Amongst the Snow. As great contrast of colours, and also nice to see new plant life growing even though it has been snowing. Gives hope for Spring (New Life, New Beginnings, etc).

  16. Melting Snow :- An unusual photo, maybe a one off. Yet clearly shows what does happen / occur within nature. Yet could so easily be missed. Wonderful for explaining to children just how snow manages to disappear.
