Even though our fall in southern Wisconsin has been incredibly mild, winter is inevitable, including another frosty, but snow-free, morning. Here are a few more photos that I got of the frost.
In the first shot, I chose to include a young sprig as a point of interest.
In the second, I was more concerned with the overall compositional balance.
I wound up liking the second shot more, despite the fact that it had no specific focal point of interest.
The elements of the third shot below were more diverse, including both new and old and a variety of colors.
All of these were shot with the aid of a tripod. I thought it was important to keep as much of the image in good focus, so I chose narrow apertures, running from f/16 to f/22. As a result, exposure times were from 0.3 to 0.6 seconds, much too long for me to take on a hand-held basis.
Finally, while I was at it, I grabbed a photo of my favorite park bench in Mequon, this on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan in Mequon's Virmond Park. Colorwise, there wasn't much going on, so I converted the shot to a black & white.
