While the sun and sky have been bright outside, it hasn't exactly been good weather for photos. It isn't really the cold; it's the lack of snow. Standing out in the cold, getting cold fingers is worth it if you happen to catch a beautiful snow scene or a sundog. But when it's frozen, snowless ground, it isn't too inspiring.
Instead, I'm trying to use my macro lens more. After a miserable failure trying to photograph our chess set, I resorted to the duster that I had sitting out on the kitchen counter. This is what I use for cobwebs at the ceiling level.
When it's full screen on my monitor, it's like being in pink grass. I think I see some leftover cobwebs at the right hand side of the picture.
