Getting close to the Landscape, Macro Photography

This winter I want to spent sometime getting in close with nature and the local landscape, with a macro lens. I feel that even though the summer and even Autumn are almost over there are still lots of subjects that will be fascinating when captured close up.

Water and rain drops are just such a subject and when we get more frost and ice I will spend lots of time outside in the early hours capturing as many images as possible.

The image above was taken with the help of an LED ring flash gun, you can see the lighting effects produced in each drop of water…..

      • I’ve done a few digital macro photo’s myself, nothing on this scale, but I do agree. the viewscreen on the camera is very limiting. Keep them coming…can’t wait to see more πŸ™‚
