    • It’s a strange structure: a stalk of grass protruding out of a puddle about 4 inches deep that was frozen clear to the bottom. I wish I understood the physics of the ice crystal formation.

  4. This last series is so enjoyable. This particular one looks like a microscopic view of one of my father’s rocks.

    Merry Christmas.

    • This has become my favorite lens. It was recommended by a photo shop in Missoula, and because of that I have been buying from them ever since. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to you too!
