A Closer Look at the Familiar — CMMC

Hi all 😃 My entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: March Close Up or Macro.

I thought I’d do some macros of a familiar object!

On these last two shots I was varying the aperture to see the effect; the one on the left has a very narrow field of focus (f/2.8), whilst the one on the right (f/9) has a lot more of the shot in focus.

Icy Close-Ups — Fan Of… #97

Hi all 😁 Feel free to join in this weekly challenge whenever you find yourself thinking “I’m a fan of…” (see below for how to).

This week’s Fan Of… is macro shots of ice. Getting in really close, you can see the very structure of the ice, whether it be frost crystals or frozen raindrops or icicles. In some you can see all the trapped air bubbles, wheras in others, looking more closely at the surface, you can make out faint geometric patterns (see first pic).
