Green Needles

Green Needles

More info about this image

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.
