A handheld series photographed one morning in changing light. During the (first) incursion of the Polar Vortex this January, Chicago’s daytime temperatures were -14F. Though we “should” insulate a few windows, I did enjoy their frost patterns from indoors.

1/45–1/125 sec @ f11 to f16, ISO 200–640 (handheld)

This morning I visited a nearby bird and butterfly sanctuary—my new favorite place to photograph—and it was a treat to discover frost on the ground. (Click on the image to view a larger size.)

Lesson of the day: remember to switch Image Stabilization back on when removing the camera from the tripod to shoot handheld. 😛
