I have been inactive on EPZ and it will be a while before really catching up on this format. Following my operation, from which I have been recovering well, I am catching up on other aspects of my life. As a for instance i opened up a letter sent to me just before Christmas from a charity only yesterday. Anyways enough of me. Like everyone else with this stay at home what do I photograph? So one frosty morning I saw these frosty leaves in a pot in our back garden, with permission grabbed my wife's smartphone, and took a shot. I think I may have gone too near the leaves. Edited in Silver Efex. In passing I have given a lot of my DSLR - lenses to my eldest granddaughter and the rest to my son-in-law. I will be using mostly my new Huawei P30 from now on and also from time to time my Panasonic FZ1000.

Hi David
excellent photo
it just shows you don't have to have big cameras and top lens the quality of the cameras on phones now are great
As to getting too near the leaves you have got main ones nice and sharpe and good depth of field
Take care and stay safe

Super mono of the hoar frost, nice mono and looks reasonably sharp. Who needs expensive cameras today, when a good smartphone can do most things.
