Fire & Ice

Happy New Year to all. Well the old year ended with plenty of ice and the new one has begun with fire, so maybe I should have said “Ice & Fire”.

After a very cold night everywhere was covered in a heavy layer of frost – just the sort of thing to test my new macro lens on. The picture below was taken using a tripod & mirror lock up; its of tiny ice crystals on a car windscreen:

Then this evening I was just heading out to check the horses & wish them happy new year when I noticed that the neighbouring village of Corris was having a fireworks display. Only had time to run, grab a camera and shoot a couple of frames but it was still a pretty way to welcome the new year in.

Hope 2009 turns out to be a good year for everyone.
