Ice crystals on my bedroom window. Natural light exposures shot with a handheld K20D and Vivitar Series 1 105mm 2.5 lens.

Oooh.
Nice effect.
I've never seen this before - and not been game enough to live anywhere that cold!
Thanks for sharing.

These are outstanding.
I only wish we had weather cold enough to be able to get ice crystals.

This is a rare treat for us here. We've had fairly mild winters in the past few years.

Thanks Peter... I know I should have used a tripod, but I still think they turned ok out.

Can you believe these were all taken in about a 5 minute span? The first one looks like it's dark outside!

We're having a pretty good cold snap. In fact, it just started snowing again!

Thanks! Sorry, these are about as large as I'll post on the internet. Maybe I can do a crop or two so you can really see some of the detail.

I agree with LaRee. I was thinking more wallpaper than fabric and I would love to have them on my wall. Well done.

Thanks LaRee.... the fabric pattern is an interesting idea!

Wallpaper would be fun too! You're free to purchase a print... I'll send you a PM.

Wow, nice patterns, and nice capture of them too. I wouldn't have realised what they were if you hadn't told me. That first one, with the black background, is my favourite of the three.
