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.

A Wee Break & Happy New Year 🎉 — Fan Of… #91

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 a wee break & Happy New Year. Although the craziness of Christmas working in retail is mostly done, we now face the task of reconfiguring the store to go into spring; so more long days over the next couple of weeks. To that end, I’m taking a wee break from Fan Of…! The next post will be on Jan 11th.

As Hogmanay is only a few days away now, this seems the ideal opportunity to wish you all a Happy New Year & best wishes for 2021.
