Just like Superman.My"Fortress of solitude"
Lens: 100mm Pentax macro Camera: K5 Photo Location: Saugus Ma ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: charliezap, 11-20-2012, 03:06 PM

It was in the 20's this morning and the deck railings were covered with either frost or hoar frost(frozen fog). I had time for a couple of shots before the sun made short work of the scene.I'll have to revisit this scenario again when it presents itself.The 2nd shot is cropped a lot and the dof is varied becuse of the vast amount of ice.--charliezap

When I do this again I'll use around f/16-22and maybe a subtle flash.Maybe it will be better or maybe not.The fun is in the experimentation. --charliezap

Some times we get frost on the plant leaves and the ground. However, it ain't nothing like Charlie has here. Nice one on the 2nd photo Charlie. Like to see more of this type closeups. TFS

Nice Charlie but I have to agree that the second one is a standout.
