Telling a story with less

Wide panoramic shots of Nature’s best can definitely have impact, but since I got my new camera I have been exploring my own back yard in some detail.  What I’ve found is that honing in on those grand scenes produces some very fine captures as well.  For this I was down and dirty in the garden using macro …

but honing in on details doesn’t have to mean using macro.  This one is a crop from a larger scene …

but I liked the pattern of the branches filling the frame and the softeness, to me, helps portray the snow storm that was blowing at the time.

I didn’t use macro for this next one either – just got down and framed the shot of this frosted leaf … in it’s detail it tells the story of the rest of the garden that day.

This last one was a macro shot, taken as the freezing rain coated everything in ice crystals …
