Winter Forest
I was looking at frost patterns on the windows over Christmas & some of them looked a bit like trees. So, "Winter Forest". I shot about a Gig over the weekend. More later,

105mm f-2.5 Nikkor & bellows, about f-8+/-.

Nice design.

Thanks for the comments guys. Every day they would melt & every morning there would be something a bit different on the "best" window - the one that faced north. That was the upside. The downside was that, after processing about 200 images from RAW (6 hours on Win98), I went out & bought a new computer today. Good thing they're still having the holiday sales! ;-D

These are lovely pictures - reminds me of long ago days when as a child I would sometimes see such beautiful patterns on cold winter mornings.

The third picture looks as if it's taken of a feather. Lovely!

Wow, very imaginative. I would have never thought of shooting closeup pictures of frosts on the window. That was very creative thinking on your part. :D

More cool wallpaper. Want one? Tell me what size & I'll send it to you.

PacAce ... That was very creative thinking on your part. I'd have been a lot more creative if, last October, I'd said, "Hmmm, frost is coming - maybe I'd better wash the windows!" ;) I suspect that only the first window should be washed. I think the 2nd window needs a particle for the frost to generate on.

JoseC Take care no to get that frost on your lens HAHA! I was inside, shooting toward outside. ;)

Youngster The third picture looks as if it's taken of a feather. Lovely! If you shoot at a slight angle you can throw the edges out of focus. And the lighting behind the frost changes radically if you shift just a tiny bit right/left.
