Flakes In Situ (February 6th 2015, #4)

On February 6th, we finally had snow at a time when I could go out shooting! As usual, rather than set up a special rig to "collect" single flakes, I wanted to shoot the snow "in situ" - right where it fell down. It was about -10C and not windy - very good conditions. But the flakes were surprisingly small!


The white balance in these shots came out very blue, but I kind of like that - reflects the coolness of ice - so I left it.


Pentax-M 135mm F/3.5 plus coupled reversed Vivitar 28mm F/2.8, with off-camera Yongnuo YN-560III. Macro ration is 4.8:1. Two-shot handheld focus stack.
