Falling flooff

As I mentioned awhile back, I'm taking an online photography class to learn to use my SLR camera. It's proving to be very informative, and this ol' brain is doing its best to take everything in... and REMEMBER it (that's the hard part). A recent lesson was on using a faster shutter speed to "freeze motion". As I was outside freezing fingers taking the pics for yesterday's post, a light breeze was picking up, and the flooffy frost began falling from the trees. I thought it'd be good practice to try to catch some of it with the camera. I think I was pretty successful... here are the results (click to enlarge):

I should've tried a slower shutter speed, too, to give a blurred effect to the falling frost for comparison, but it was just TOO COLD to stay out there any longer!!

you might be tired of me telling you that these are my favorite pictures and my favorite weather phenomenon. So beautiful in the morning and by noon all gone and no frost is ever the same. I must say I have never seen so much as in one of the little tree branches. As always your pictures are awesome and absolutely gorgeous. thanks for a great post! Mark

P.S. Cindy took some pictures of waterfalls and it is amazing at the fast shutter speeds. Stay the course we will all enjoy seeing what you learned.
