From suburban lawn to backyard homestead…with ducks. A journal by Lori Fontanes
With apologies to the ghost of Walt Whitman, here is the not-so-large accidental ice cube from which came all those macro images yesterday and the day before.

I have a brand new macro lens that I have only used a few times, this post is giving me ideas, but where would I find any ice? Oh yeah, buried under two feet of snow! 😉
Nice photos by the way.
Thanks–take heart, spring *will* come!
Cool…in many different ways!
Thanks! It eventually melted but there’s more ice & snow on the way!
You fooled me:-) creative shot + original! Love that:-)
Thanks, Robbie! It amazed me even as I was doing it just how elastic the macro view could be!
I love shooting macro view, but I do not have a true macro lens. Did you use a macro lens or just up close. I did purchase some + 1,4, 10 and they were fun, but have not made the jump to get a true lens of it. I loved the idea you fooled us!
These pix were with the true macro lens that I plunked for last year (the first year of the blog I got a macro adapter which is fun but not nearly as transformative.) As I said to quietsolopursuits, I find the macro to be a bit temperamental but when it comes through, really cool! (Thanks for playing along, btw!!!)
🙂 anytime-…made me see a frozen leaf in a different way!
That is extremely cool [pun intended]. How did it form? Do you leave ice block trays in your back yard?
Actually, this is a completely “found” universe. The legs of my plastic wheelbarrow are open-ended and when I flipped it over, this lovely little ice sculpture popped out! Add a little sun, the macro lens and voila!
