What's in YOUR Backyard?

What's In YOUR Backyard?

OK, I decided to stop whining about the weather, and go out and try to make it work for me. It was 17 degrees, with a light snow and the sun came out for a little while, so I went out to my backyard (bravely, I thought) to fool around and see what I could do to alleviate my boredom.


Sometimes, Mother Nature comes up with the most pleasing of surprises, providing something magical when we least expect it.

 

I'm pretty sure that if I had gone out there with a mind to capture a 'star snowflake' reflected in the sun, this would not have happened.

Most of our snows here are heavy and wet, but once in awhile we get this very light, fluffy snow that gently piles up with beautifully formed flakes.

OK, now you have really inspired me as I knew my could what I hadn't learned yet and you just proved it. I own the D90 and the 50mm lens, now I just need to get out there and start trying to get shots like this. (I just ordered online the close up lens)
