Well, it seems to work out very nicely. At least if you have a Leica Digilux 2 with its brilliant Vario-Summicron lens. I think the details are incredible for a such low resolution camera. It surely was a magical moment to see the shot below on a computer screen. I actually have thought about to get another Leica someday. Maybe M8. I know it has its quirks but I think it would be fantastic B&W camera with some nice Leica lens. But we’ll see. As usually.
We have had very cold weather lately (- 32 C or so) and trees are now extremely beautiful because of thick frost on their branches. This kind of weather is not any unusual situation here in Finland though. It is normal winter for us. The lowest temp what we have had at our place was – 42 C in February 2007. Here are few photos from the past days. Hopefully they look like cold.
The birches in our yard were so stunningly beautiful yesterday morning. Frost was so pure white and it was flickering nicely in the sunshine. Sky was totally blue without any clouds. The air smelled spring even if we still have some 75 cm snow everywhere.
Today we are not having any blue skies. Dark clouds are over us and we are having a heavy snow fall at the moment.
These are the beautiful frosty birches in our yard today. It has been so stunningly beautiful weather (even if not so much sun shine) and trees and bushes look so marvellous. It is a pity that I haven’t had much time for shooting lately. At working days the outdoor shooting is almost impossible because darkness arrives just after 3 p.m. at this time of year. But our direction is spring time and lots more light! It is coming but slowly.
