Ice in photography

This morning I woke up very early to a huge frost, everything was blanketed in it and looked fuzzy with ice, and then the sun started to shine.  It looked amazing.  So I rushed outside, (coat over dressing gown plus hat etc – probably made my neighbours wonder what on earth was going on if they did see me crawling around in the flower beds), and I took some pictures.  Here is one:

I could not really go any more macro on shots with the basic camera and lens I was using, so decided to investigate what lens would work.  Along my googling journey I came across these stunning close ups of Ice by Oystein Johnsen.

I also found a large collection of ice macro shots by various photographers on Gizmodo, all amazing.  This page is also really handy for lens information as the photographers discuss how they took the shot and with what cameras and lenses.
