A few more shots from this weekends snow and ice:
I don’t know what it is about photographing ice and icicles, but I find that auto-focus doesn’t always behave that well – I assume it has something to do with the translucency of the subject. Ideally I’d have had the camera locked-off on a tripod and manually focused using live-view. Unfortunately the location of the icicles in these shots didn’t allow for that, for instance shots 4 to 6 were hanging down from the guttering at the top of the house and involved me leaning out of an upstairs window to get them.
