I generally dread the onset of cold weather, because overall photographic opportunities seem to dwindle in my mind. However, I have recently delved further and further into the realm of macro photography and minimalistic foliage shots, a maturation of sorts.
This year I plan on embracing the cold a bit more, because with subject matter like frost, snow flakes, and patterned ice the possibilities are really limitless.
The above photograph was taken with my nifty new Tamron 90mm VC macro lens mounted on “old faithful”, my 18mp T2i. I set the center column of my Manfrotto 190xProB horizontal for precision low-level shooting for this photo.
