Green Needles

Green Needles

It was so cold the day after the last big storm that these needles were still frozen. Bastard snow!

Taken in macro mode on the 70-200mm f4 (non-image stabilzed; didn’t want to throw down for a lens we weren’t going to use that much, but it’s looking like the 2.8 IS will eventually join the ranks of the coveted).

    Quite nice. I like the contrast of the vivid color with the snow.

    Every time I see your photos it makes me want a D40X more and more.

    Lovely shot! Almost makes you like the snow, doesn’t it? Almost…

    Brrr…nice, frosty shot.

    We’re supposed to get another 25-30 cm overnight here, East of Toronto. Makes me want to cry.

    @shauna – I think he shoots with a Canon. And if your going Nikon get a D40 and spend the savings on a nice lens. Check out http://www.kenrockwell.com

    @Ritish – I know. I am just a Nikon fan (I like the menus better). Also, my husband has a D40X with all of the nice lenses, filters, etc. So I would just get the standard and borrow his lenses.

    I love how minty the snow looks.
