Lensball Mangnification — Fan Of… #92

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… the magnification of ice crystals in a lensball.

I was recently up at Palacerigg Country Park on a cold winters morning. I’d literally just raced the sun to the top of the park for the first sunrise shots of the New Year.

Happy with the sunrise shots, I headed off to a different part of the park for more lensball landscape shots.

The wood that lensy was sat on had frost on it where the crystals had grown in the shape of the wood grain.

I noticed that looking down through the lensball, the ice crystals were magnified, with a star burst effect round the outside 😎

The next shots were taken in a slightly different place.

The ice structure was very different.

My Favourites — Lens-Artists Challenge #129

Hi all πŸ˜ƒ My entry for this weeks challenge, set by Tina: Favourite Images of 2020.

Travel was very much curtailed in 2020, but it’s amazing what we can see within walking distance of home!

Starting off with these shots of a visiting squirrel drinking from small puddles on the shed roof.

Had a lot of fun playing with my new macro lens; these are my favourites!

My lensball was also a new toy, & much experimantation helped me to learn what does & doesn’t work. Basically, yay for landscapes! although the shot of daisy cottage with a daisy had to make the selection too πŸ˜ƒ

…and finally, I managed to get a decent shot of the moon (the last full moon of 2020) πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ
