We’ve had a cold snap …

wind chill today is -5° F. I haven’t been out, so there weren’t too many opportunities to shoot pictures. Indeed, my windows were so frosted up that I literally couldn’t see through them. They were actually natural examples of what is called “frosted glass”; they looked like they could have been used for bathroom windows.

So, seeing that I couldn’t shoot through them, I decided to photograph the windows themselves. Getting the light just right for this kind of work is the tricky bit; it entails a deal of waiting, for something that might not happen at all.

Here are a couple, shot at the same time …

That window screen is not frozen into the frost, it’s actually a fraction of an inch away from it, towards the camera.

The next were the first I’ve taken and used a tint of colour to make them a little more interesting. First, the untinted versions:

And next, the shapes of the frost pattern suggesting a green tint:

A darker green, this time …resize-of-dsc_3246-copy

I thought the resemblance to an evergreen-covered mountainside was quite striking … couldn’t resist adding the colour.

The last one is just pretty straightforward … just a light blue tint:

Well, that’s what I’ve been doing these past days … it ain’t much, but it’s been a bit of fun for me. I hope you like ’em.

Cheers, all!
