Known by several in my department as "the ugliest building on campus," but I like the interesting glass panels and the way they pick up the light from different angles. It's very true that the architecture does not match anything else on campus, but it's a bold statement none-the-less.

Snowflake by andiwolfe

This is my first attempt at doing macrophotography of a snowflake. It's not an easy thing to do.


Sport glove, left out in the cold for 10 min
Canon 5D III
Canon EF 100 mm f/2.8 L lens
Canon twin flash

What I learned:

Snowflakes are tiny!
I need to get an extension tube to get closer to a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio next time.
My fingers get cold when working in subfreezing temps.....

From the old jalopy at Glacier Ridge Metro Park. We've had snow three weekends in a row. This is from January 26, 2013. The tires of the jalopy had a lovely blanket of snow for a detail shot.

Intentional Camera Movement; vertical pan. 1/20 f22 ISO 200 35 mm

Last weekend's excursion to Sharon Woods. We've been having such strange winter weather this year. We've had snow for the past three weekends, but temps have been in the 60's for part of each of the last two weeks. So, we get some snow, then it rains, then the sun melts it all away, and then the cycle begins again. Weird.
