The Icy World of My Back Yard

Even though I live in Canada, just on the outskirts of a  small little village called Fort Langley (near Vancouver), called Glenn Valley, it does get cold. We do get days when it gets down right nasty, thought not as much as some other places that I have lived in throughout Canada, we do have our moments here in the Fort. Actually, we are normally one of the warmest places all year around in Canada, as we get the warmth from the Pacific Ocean, generally we are pampered with very mild winters. So when I does get cold, you enjoy its beauty here!

Frost at -8C seems to be that magic temperature with lots of humidity, that makes for some really interesting frost formations.

These are some shots I took yesterday of the plants around my back years. I used a flash becuase I had really low light levels in this area. These plants are most always in the shade throughout the whole day.

Just imagine everything around you covered with this frost in the forest. The world is coloured icy white, and you can hear sounds from very long distances away.

All of theses images I used a 30mm Marco lens, ISO 100, using Manual setting, with the Auto-Focus on, with one Speedlight. My camera used here is the Sony A33, mounted a SAL30M28 lens, with a Sony HVLF60M flash.

  1. It must be really magical!
    I cannot tell you used a flash at all.

  2. Yup, I used the flash becuase the light levels were so low. All of these shots were late in the day, and in the shade.
