it froze thursday night

For those who've asked. ;) My camera equipment.

Camera 1: Canon EOS 1Ds 8.2 MP Mark II
Lens 1: Tokina 24-200mm AT-X 242 AF

Camera 2: Canon 300D Rebel 6.3 MP
Lens 2: Sigma 105mm f/2.8 EX DG Medium Telephoto Macro Lens

My general and business photography is done with the Mark II and its lens. My macro photography is done with my Rebel and its lens.

For those who've been following this blog for a very long time: until about 18 months ago all my photography was done with the Rebel and the Macro lens with the occasional exception of my Lensbaby and my homemade macro lens (made from a projection lens and a body cap) with which I take extreme photos such as the photo of my eyeball that I use for my portrait.


  1. I'm always amazed at the detail you get in your photos. The frost is spectacular.

  2. Freezing already? Oh my goodness. Those images are wonderful. I am happy to say I have a sweater on right now as it's 64 degrees.

  3. Your photos are always spectacular!
    Freeze already?? Wow! Wish it would cool down here some

  4. Really magnificent Melissa! We are expecting frost I think Saturday night...time to get the rest of the cucumbers in!

  5. Wow. Just wow. That bee and the dragonfly's wings.

  6. Thanks so much for the lens notes, that is very helpful. I am considering a macro lens.
    Eek, I can't believe you had frost. It was 8 degree c. last night. I am going to have to bring a couple of my tropicals in this weekend!

  7. Stunning photos ... They would deserve to be printed in poster size !

  8. AMAZING! What you do with the same camera I have! Some SERIOUS skills going on here! :P


  9. Beautiful Melissa! These are just a-MAZE-ing!
