I got out this morning to capture snowflake macro shots!! This time I was able to get a little better, but I still have a lot of room for improvement though. I have learned that my macro lens, even though its great for baby eyelashes, toes and ring shots, it’s just not close enough to those tiny snowflakes. Also the ideal lighting and environment helps. Most people do not understand just how small these snowflakes are. You have to look close, I mean super close to realize that these tiny flakes falling from the sky have an actual shape. But it’s just beautiful!!! Mine are nothing compared to these but they are the ones that inspired me check them out here: Snowflake photography
Here are some of my shots from this morning. My hands almost got frostbit, my knees were numb, my neighbors think I’m crazy. Actually, our neighbors son, that is a cop for the police department here, stopped to ask me if everything was ok. HAHA.. Yes sir, I’m just taking photos of snowflakes 🙂 Snowflake Macro shots are very swiftly becoming a favorite of mine. However living in middle TN is probably not ideal since we don’t get much snow.
