Evergreen Frost

Everygreen Frost

f/7.1, 1/125, ISO-400, 50mm

I’ve always rather liked the apparent contradiction of white frost on green needles of evergreens. This morning we had a dense fog and 24 degrees F, which made for great conditions for taking frost photos. If you look back at some of the earliest posts of this blog, you’ll see my very first attempts at capturing frost, and that was a much more dramatic frost than this one. Looking back, this picture seems to me to be the clearest proof of how much I have improved as a photographer over the past year. I hope I can say I’ve improved as much again a year from now.

There wasn’t much in the way of post-processing on this image, though I did bring out the green, and muted the red/orange background at the top to black and white to make the green pop a little more.

    • My camera pretty much always goes with me. It’s an old holdover from my photo-journalist days. I lived by the proverb that you can’t get the shot if you don’t have the camera. Coincidentally, I have a whole post coming up in the next couple of weeks where I totally derail from photography and go on a rant about the current state of journalism. :) Oh well, I try not to rant too much.

  1. I always see wonderful things when I forget to take my camera somewhere (or just don’t bother to) – when I have it with me, it’s usually grim conditions and I see nothing worth taking. I must get into the habit of always taking it places. It’s a big, old heavy film Zenith though so weighs a lot and is pretty bulky!
