The polar vortex this year has been a bit crazy, sending cold waves down south resulting in heavy snowfall and low temperatures.
Few days ago we had a constant rain for some hours, which combined with the cold weather it froze the water over the trees.
These photos were taken with a 70-200mm lens, using close apertures to capture as much detail as possible. In most of the photos I used extension tubes, which allows to take closer photographs, like a macro lens.
To take photos like the one below, I usually set the lens to the closer focus in manual mode and then get myself as closer as possible to the subject and adjust the focus by moving closer or farther. To make sure that I don’t lose any details, I take more than one photo for the same composition, because in macro photography the depth of field is very short and details can get easily out of focus.
