Nancy's Beaded Fish; I call him NED

ISO 200 f/11 1/125th of second Studio Lighting conditions

Nancy embroidered this piece awhile ago (although she says it isn't finished yet) and today I realized I hadn't photographed it, so while working on another photograph for her, I slipped this one in.   I have also been updating the NEDBeads website ( ) and decided to use this little guy, who I've named NED, as a kind of guide through the pages.  You can find him swimming about the link bar at the top of the page.  :)

Snow & Ice

ISO 800 f/8 1/15th of a second tripod mounted: flash and white reflector

This evening just after the snow started to fall I took a piece of ice that had been forming all day on the corner of the house and stuck it in the accumulated snow on our hedges. About midnight I went out with a camera and took this image.  The snow flakes are attaching themselves to the ice and creating this crystal structure. 

The wonders of simple things!
