Eeeeek, I’m so excited to show you guys these pictures! πŸ˜€ It snowed 6 or 7 inches while we were up at the new farm, and it was GORGEOUS. β™₯ Good thing I brought my camera, heh heh. I also brought the macro extension tube set I got for Christmas and it worked splendidly for taking pictures of individual snowflakes! Sooo pretty.

Anyway, I guess I’ll let you see for yourselves now, huh?

I love this little snowdrift sculpture on the roof. πŸ˜›

Isn’t this neat? It’s kind of hard to tell, but it’s snow on a wooden staircase.

Dripping icicles are great fun to take pictures of. πŸ™‚

I think this one’s neat too. β™₯ It kind of looks vintage to me – does it to you?

There were some cute birds by the hay rebaling barn and I got some… okay pictures. They wouldn’t let me get too close, and I was only wearing tennis shoes in the snow so I didn’t WANT to get too close or my feet would get completely soaked. XD

Ohhhh for some reason I love this picture. β™₯ REMEMBER THOSE DOUGHNUTS?

Snow + Cows = Photogenicness. Sadly I took this out the car window so it isn’t as photogenic as it could be.

I quite like how you can see the snow falling so clearly in these pictures!

The falling snow… the wooden fences… the covered trees… ahh, I think I can safely say snow looks even prettier down there than up here, and that’s saying something. XD

Alright, now for my favorite part – the close-ups!

Look, you can see the invidual snowflake(s)!

Snowflakes are incredibly beautiful. β™₯

And now for my pride and joy… ta-daa!

snow 8 (1280x960)

Isn’t it so beautifully delicate? I just LOVE zooming in and being able to see the intricacy of each snowflake. β™₯ So far this is definitely my favorite part about that lens set. I’ll hopefully do a review of them once I take more photos with them and figure them out a bit more, but they’re quite neat so far!

One thing I will say – you have to use manual focus which is difficult when taking such close-up pictures. Even a tiny movement can make the subject blurry. But other than that, I love them!

I hope you enjoyed these pictures, dears. πŸ˜€ Which ones were your favorites? Did you get snow where you live too?

P. S. Guys, if you love photography too, you should definitely check out Roxanne’s photography challenge! I probably won’t be doing it since, as I keep saying, we’re pretty busy with the move, but it looks super neat and I’ll bet it will be great fun!
