Macro photography is just plain hard

On a recent frosty morning I headed out into the backyard to see what I could find.   I carried the 24-70mm and the 100mm macro with the intent of photographing some tiny scenes.   I’ve been poking at macro photography for a while now — it’s hard work and I’m nowhere near good at this.

When I walked down to the river’s bank I found a familiar set of ice forms that I have yet to photograph successfully.  As you can see below, they still elude me.   I’m thinking that video may be a better medium for these as it may be that the interaction of the ice and water is what makes the scene and short of bringing lots of artificial light into the image, I don’t think this can be captured (not that I won’t keep on trying.)   Still, it was great fun lying in the snow almost standing on my head trying not have the camera slide into the river.
