Frosty by WaitingForTheWorms Frosty by WaitingForTheWorms
:D A little experiment with snowflakes and my camera. This time at Tina's suggestion, so she could see what that *point-and-shoot* of mine could do. :laughing: Not much I guess. :roll: Besides the lack of real nice snow (we got a dusting of very tiny snowflakes yesterday, and at night, so those weren't fresh from the sky), my camera had really hard time focusing on flat white. :O_o: It was the best it could do. :(

it's really cool, I've never been able to look at a snow flake so close to see anything but a white blob lol

Oh, I just scanned through some of your comments and see that the young man I was talking about left you a comment. By the way, I really liked the picture. I think it is a great shot.

I had a really hard time getting good shots of snowflakes, too, until we got a dry snow, then I got some pretty good shots. I don't know if you watch this young man, but if you don't you might enjoy looking at his snowflake pics. Or they might make you cry. :lol:

I say that it turned out really good.
You did a really good job, even if you think you didn't. I tried to take some macro pictures of the snow but with my camera I just can't go up that close. I need macro lenses but since my camera is not a DSLR camera you can't find macro lenses for it :(

:aww: Thank you. :bow: :bow: :D Maybe I just compare it too much to photos taken with macro lens. :laughing: My camera isn't DSLR either so all I have is macro mode. :lol:

:iconbermimana:
bermimana Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2008
Wow, that's a great macro shot for not having macro lens!!! I wish my camera's macro mode would be like that! Can I ask you what camera do you have?
Again very, very nice job! :aww:
