We have had little snow this winter however we had a quick snap of very cold weather a week or so ago. Because of this, the ponds have frozen quickly leaving beautiful smooth ice.

I have always had a fascination with wanting to get a "closer look" at things around me. So it wasn't a surprise when a photography friend of mine asked me if I wanted to borrow her Canon macro 100mm 2.8 lens and I jumped at it. I had done my "usual research" on this lens months ago so I knew what I was in for! Well, it certainly was not a disappointment and one week later, I got my own.Although I am still getting used to it and photographing macro this time of year can be tricky, I found shooting some water drops to be a great subject and then realized, they certainly are NOT just drops of water!
|This drop on some winterberry berries in my yard, really opened my eyes to what can happen in a drop......|
|This image is a close up of the berry in the photo above, when turned upside down, it is magnifying my dog that is standing on the stonewall above me (looking left)|
|Just another pretty shot that is magnifying some of the other berries on the bush.|
Let's just say, it's not the end of shooting drops!
