Some frosty macros

The past few days have provided some of the frostiest mornings one could wish for (photographically, that is!) So I got out my Pentax-A f2.8 50mm macro and a venerable MacroTakumar preset f4 50mm and put them on a K5. I hope you like the results as much as I do ......

These first ones were on a spot where the sun was rapidly melting everything, leaving behind only the skeletal remains

You can clearly see how the crystals have formed into hexagonal towers

These are from a more sheltered spot where there was a lot more frost .....

This looks more metallic than frosty as I reduced the highlights and increased the contrast in PP



The 1st February is the festival of Imbolc, marking the demise of Winter as new life struggles to emerge

My kind of set that David, really well executed.

I have to say I really do like taking macro winter shots...one of the reasons I got my macro in the first place.

No.6 the standout for me.

I feel like 3 is so nearly a winner too, but the out of focus part at the front is blocking the part I really want to see!

Thanks for sharing.

These are really superb and they have got me thinking that it would be good to do some frost images with my butchered zoom and reversed Nikkor enlarger lens.

5 and 6 are the ones that really hit me in the eye.

Thank you all for supporting the old glassware. It has got a lot of life in it yet!

These are all quite beautiful, David. I like how the frost in #3 look like icy plants growing out of the cold.

Amazing set David! No. 3 & 5 are my favorites! In 5th image, color combination looks quite beautiful!

Thank you so much, David, for sharing such a wonderful set!

Thank you. As someone said above, it's a pity about the OOF bit getting in the way on #3.
