A few days back, the snow was coming down in the biggest flakes I think I've ever seen.
I went outside to investigate and decided to play with my new Macro Lens.
As it turned out, those inch sized globs falling from the sky were not snowflakes per se, but large masses of many many snowflakes all stuck together.
As you can tell from these photos, I have some reading to do in order to know how to use my lens correctly.
You can see the definition of a few snowflakes, and I actually like the photos with this look of abstraction.
Once I know what I'm doing and how and why to change the settings on this thing, I hope to have some clear shots of a snowflake or two. Just from this first attempt, I can see you have to be quick and know what you're doing. Snowflakes tend to melt real fast.
