Default Frosty Window Paines

Two from this week and some from last year. Hope you enjoy these frosty macros!

And two pictures using Gina's kaleidoscope thanks to Patty's download.

These are fantastic! I've never seen (or noticed) frost looking like this before (without kaleidoscope).

The kaleidoscope effect you used is really cool, too!

Thanks Gina, the photos have been color enhanced in Photoshop, by either saturation or in the case of the green one by using the channel mixer.

The color that is present when the pictures are taken is reflecting color that is in the bokeh from natural background reflections outside the window and by the sun angle to my house window when I take them.

I should have mentioned that they are taken with both the K100 and the K-7 using the Vivitar Series 1 macro lens.

I like the first one the best I think, just the way it looks overall. They are all very cool looking (pun not intended ). The kaleidoscope shots are really neat too. Nicely done.

Very cool shots (in more ways than one). We only occasionally get frost like this - I always love looking at it when we do - they always make such interesting patterns. And well done with the kaleidoscope effect - it really works with them.

Mole - Thanks for the nice comments.

Mike - Thanks # 1 is my favorite and I often have it as a screen saver on my computer, during the summer of course.

Harriet - I need very cold temperatures to get these images. The frost forms on the inside of my storm windows and I need to open the primary window and take my shot quickly before the temperature in the room starts melting the frost. The shots from last year were taken when it was -6 bellow and this years at about 3 above zero f.

GW - Cool! Heck no it was freezing cold. But a lot of fun taking them.

Lou
