Welcome to my Collection about Ice and Snow!

As of the winter of 2016 I've decided to challenge myself some more and find new subjects for me shoot. My first challenge is ice and snow, and challenging it has proven to be!
I will post my experiments and results in this Collection, which will probably stay seasonal. Enjoy!


Some general announcements:

If you found this collection because it's featured (or otherwise): thank you so much for checking it out, I hope you'll enjoy it!

As a brief introduction in this pinned post, let me just take the time to say that I'm a simple amateur photographer; I started out with borrowed equipment and have steadily improved my gear to get to my current setup. Practice, of course, is the most important aspect, as well as interaction with everyone else. I love to talk about my shots!
That said, I think it is only fair to expect others to treat photographers with respect - a lot of effort went into making these pictures... Therefore, if you feel like sharing this work with others: please use the reshare function and _do not download and repost_.

!= Summer
 
I don't mind the warmer weather that we are having at the moment, but sometimes I miss the winter. I should have experimented more back then.

Not done yet
 
You thought I was done with the frost shots, didn't you? Well I found a couple more from last winter that I can share. Here's a small branch with a thread of spider silk - both are covered in a nice layer of frosty crystals.

Ice swing
 
Hey all, turns out I still had some unshared frost shots from this winter. There's still some frost here during the night, some days, but no way that I'm getting out at dawn to freeze my bum off for you guys :P

Sorry for the silence, got a lot of priorities mixed up at the moment. New material is coming soon!

Soft
 
A nice tip of a branch, covered in soft, downy frost crystals. This image was composed of 2 shots with slightly different depth of field.
The sun is shining brightly as we speak, so we'll probably have to wait for next winter to try out more frost photography!
