Time to shoot nature's winter magic
It is rare here in Kent to get hoarfrost, but this morning the temperature was a chilly -4 degrees C, sunny and wonderfully still; the perfect opportunity to get out there with the macro lens and shoot some close-up images. Both Doug and I were up early, unable to resist the temptation to get out with our cameras and as you will see below we've captured a few interesting shots between us. I concentrated on using my macro lens looking for the crystal structures, whilst Doug (on his morning walk with his dogs) concentrated on a wider approach with some landscape images.
After 30 minutes outside, although my toes were very cold my hands were strangely warm; another plus from the photography point of view as I was shooting on manual and constantly changing the depth of field and ISO (dependent on whether I was shooting in the shade or into the sunlight). Gloves were not really an option!

....In the meantime, here are a few more of our images to enjoy.
