Frost covered feather

frost covered feather

Today the weather was really beautiful and I'm really starting to miss the possibility to go to the forest for a good walk somewhere close by. We used to live on almost walking distance from the Forêt de Montmorency and the Colne Valley Park cannot really compete with that ^_^;;

Anyway, the garden was frost covered and I always wanted to play around a little more with my macro lenses. This pigeon feather was frost covered and I moved it in the sun by instructions in the "Learning to See Creatively" book by Bryan Peterson. I had to be quick as in the following shot, all the frost had already melted :-)
