Ice

By cattyal  
No masterpieces today I'm afraid but I did at least play with some iced up leaves this morning.

I brought the leaves in and set them in front of a sheet of black velvet in the sun - which meant I had to work pretty swiftly.

Tweaked a bit - Lucis mostly....

Going through a bit of a slump on the creative side but hopefully that will change soon.

Three cracking images Al. They each put my recent efforts to shame. The detail "inside" is fantastic in each of them

No masterpieces? A masterclass in close-up photography, I'd say. Beautifully sharp.

Thanks everyone Smile I was fortunate to find a few good sized drops of ice on the leaves. The detail in side is pretty neat isn't it? Pure luck!

V2 is the result of a smaller drop sliding down to meet the large one - a happy collision....

Thanks again everyone Smile

Admittedly I simply looked for the leaves with the largest drops of ice on them - it wasn't until I got them into the sunshine and they started to melt, that I could see what was going on inside.

I've just uploaded a cropped original of V1 - just in case you fancy seeing it...

Thank you! On one hand I'm hoping for more ice at the weekend but on the other I'd love to see the back of it!
