Snowflake 8

Winter is almost over in the Jura Mountains. According to the previsions, there will be only sun shining during the following week. So, It's time to post the last wintery pictures and to start considering spring !


I don't know what you think about that, but for me, it's hard to get satisfactory pictures of nature during this transition period between winter and spring (it's the same between fall and winter) : everything is so ... brown-grey. There's no colors, no leafs, no life ... It's just time to wait, or to do other kind of photography like portraits ...


This picture (like the last one) was taken during a perfect snowing day : the conditions for macro snowflakes were just perfect : big translucid dendrites everywhere, no wind, a good covered sky with a diffused light ... I just had to shoot, the weather was doing all the job ;) !


This is a single shot. Probably the last of this year (unless late seasonal snow) ...


Here again, I used the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 macro and kenko extension tubes.
