I love the detail in the ice crystals. Also the barn shots are breathtaking!

Hey Mole ... Thnx for sharing a little bit of Tennessee winter with us ... My faves are the sunrise and the 'chipmunk ice.' The ice crystals are tooo cool (no pun intended!).

Macro is Da BOMB

Love your series, the frost at the chipmunk's den is interesting (never thought about it, very interesting little tidbit of information). HDR can be very frustrating - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I happen to like yours, since it is pretty understated for HDR, and looks pretty natural.

Great photos Mole. The ice crystals are very striking. I love the old barns. It looks like it will not be very long before they completely fall down. Thank you for bringing us along!

Looks cool. I love seeing the blue sky with the green grass. I took a few photos today with some blue sky. But, certainly no green grass!

Enjoyable series Mole. The HDR effect in your shot is subtle - what's not too like !

Hans - Thanks so much for your kind words!

Eddie - Glad you enjoyed them!

Katsi - Thanks so much! Have often noticed "breath frost," but never took time to photograph it before...

GW - Glad you liked the old barns!

Harriet - Thanks for the HDR feedback. What troubled me most on this one was the pale "ghosting" (?) around some of the edges.

MtnMan - Glad you enjoyed the rambles. Yes, we are losing a lot of old barns and rural scenes as suburbia continues to expand...

Patty - All your "grass" is rather white these days! Hope the green reappears soon!

Greenbaron - Thanks! Actually, I am blessed to live where it's easy to find good nature photographs, just point the camera in almost any direction and click...

Kevin - Thanks so much - but it still doesn't look quite right to me... Will keep playing around with it as time permits...

Kashka - Thanks for your very kind words. Part of my job at Park Ranger is to share delight in the commonplace things... Glad you share the delight!
