(Frozen) Still Life

Nikon D70 @ 48mm, 1/160 sec, f/8, ISO 200

Previous · Current · Next

I actually took this shot on Christmas day - it was really foggy and I thought I would get some shots of the countryside engulfed in the white stuff. But I didn't really find what I was looking for so didn't stay out for long. That, plus the fact that I had a huge feast waiting for me at home - made all the more appealing by the fact that I was freezing my chops off!

Horticulture isn't my strong point, so I'll let someone else explain what this is. But I liked the way it looked with the frozen dew, and that's all that matters :)

I took this shot from very low down so that I could get the fog to make a nice simple background for me. A very slight vignette added in photoshop finished it off.

Lovely shot John - something different for you! I like the monotone feel and the crispness :)

Macro would have been seriously cool in this situation.

Marcel Proust said, "The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes." I think you have found new eyes. With your photographs you are showing us what it is like to really see.

Andy, out of all the comments I have ever received on my work - and there have been a few - I think that this one has got to be my favourite. Profound, elegant and deeply complimentary - and all delivered in 3 sentences.

At the risk of sounding cliche, it's comments like this that genuinely give me the motivation to keep shooting and sharing. And for that I cannot thank you enough.
