Up close

It's been a sloppy, slushy week.  I'm sure there are many creative ways to photograph slush.  Today, when I looked at the driveway, I envisioned a big tarp where I could lie on my stomach and photograph slush from eye level.  Maybe next winter.

In the meantime, I've been getting up close, practicing with my macro lens.  This is one of my Valentine roses.

We had some rain immediately following a light snow, so I tried to get up close to some snow at the side of the house:

I'm looking forward to spring.
