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.

Winter Woods In Abstract

We went for a walk around Storeton Woods earlier today, to take some shots of the wintry conditions here on the Wirral.

I thought it was a perfect opportunity to have another go at the “vertical panning” technique I first posted about here.

I’m really quite pleased with the way these have turned-out. I think the muted colours and ghostly “blur” add to the stark wintry feel.
