I think it needs to be hovering around the freezing point to get this shape in icicles. Just a guess. Posted by Picasa

Love these. I've tried similar shots and they're boring. Are you using a ND filer?

I'm so lame, I had to look up what an ND filter was. Nope, just the same old, same old Fujifilm S5000 and Raynox M250.

The light was really working with me, it was bright and sunny, mid afternoon. I was at the edge of the shadow, concentrating on the area just before where the sun was shining on the tree, so we have a backlit subject but the light gets through the icicles.

Mostly I just had a good subject. :)

My computer says I used f/7.0, 1/800 s and 200 ISO, but after a few of my experiments I can't say how much the camera modified the incoming image. I really want an SLR! :)

Oh yes, you need an SLR. It's the only way to go.

Very cool pictures!

Thanks Oricon!

I'll put the SLR on my b-day wish list!
