Ice can be cool...

Whilst out walking our little terrier 'Herbie' today around some of the (frozen) local fields on what turned into one of the sunnier days of late I started to notice some of the fascinating patterns the ice had created in puddles.

And so....out came the 100mm macro lens and I set about trying to get some shots of the more interesting ones. I'm not over-keen on using the camera in such cold conditions as we've had recently but I only took a few shots before it was safely back in its bag with a little hand warmer to keep the interior dry and a reasonable temperature until I got home.
