Yesterday morning was the first cold commute of the year. A steady 0°C (32°F) occasionally hitting -0.5° C. With the wind chill factured in thats about -11°C (12°F), I will definitely be getting out the thermals soon, but until then a pair of silk under-gloves and the heated grips were enough to keep me warm, together with my BMW Rallye 2 Suite. This will be my second winter in this suite and while expensive I feel its been well worthwhile
While cold it was a beatiful morning, a clear blue sky, golden sunlight and the farmers fields covered in a white frost. All very beautiful.
This gave me a few ideas for some photo’s. Mornings like these are always good for inspiration, even a trip to the local park or just go into your garden, can have images worth capturing, a dew and frost encrusted spidersweb, those bright red berries on a bush. You don’t need an expensive macro lens for this stuff. Just dig out that old 50mm prime you never use and give it go.
