I´d love to title this image "Golden Ice", but it resembles too much James Bond´s movie title music, was that the one Tina Turner sang? So...it´s untitled I guess. Oh btw, this shot was taken today afternoon around 2 pm, I was on a stroll with Sandra and she spotted these ice pieces on the very same park where I took my previous photo with ice 2 years ago. Even the bush is the same one! This time I got some help from the sun and used a different lens, my Tamron macro. What a beautiful winter day we had! Don´t even remember the last time the sun was shining all day 🌞🌞🌞 Happy Saturday-evening! 💜


andy-w: Beautiful.... Gray and rainy here 😁

_marisol: Good morning Andy. It´s quite difficult to take a macro shot with sunbeams/light if you want to avoid lens flares. Luckily, I had my 2nd best macro lens, Tamron 80 mm f2.8. My best one is Canon 100 mm, but its focal length is somewhat too large for such an image, esp with a cropped sensor. Gray & rainy there? 😄 Nothing new about the weather in England 😀 Kidding! We have -5 and fog. Looks pretty cool outside. Wish I had time to go out to take winter fog pictures but I´m babysitting today. It´s my hubby´s floorball day. Thank you & Have a laid back Sunday! 😊🌞🌞

ttomzz: ...and another gorgeous image!!! Glad the sun was out and you were too...give Lady S. a smooch

_marisol: I can thank Sandra for this picture because I would have walked past this small park and could hardly notice the small pieces of ice on the twigs. But Sandrita, she wanted to go and have a look more closely. There was quite a bit of snow in the park and when she walked there she fell into the deep snow and pretty much disappeared...but I heard her laugh and knew everything´s ok. Children love snow and this winter we have quite a lot of it. It´s morning and we viewing pics together, so that smooch, delivered! ThanKx and have a super lazy Sunday! 🌴🍹🌺✨😄

_marisol: damn my crazy phone...*we are viewing

ttomzz: ...on the nose for me, and have a peaceful and relaxing evening Sunday...😎🌴🎶

_marisol: Thanks! As I said, a smooch delivered!! Time flies and tomorrow I´ll share my first pic from Sweden. Happy Sunday Sir! 🌊🌴💙

ian.underthesea: What a beauty! Call it whatever you like, it is just so nice - the shallow depth of field, the golden rays of sun,

Posted: 2019 Jan 12 11:10:36 PM

_marisol: Thank you very much for your support and encouraging words that mean a lot to me. I had to be very careful with the sunlight to avoid lens flares. If I had raised the lens even a little up I couldn´t have avoided lens flares. I used my Tamron 80 mm f2.8 macro lens, had to set up a little bit tighter aperture f7.0 to get the ice sparkling. Yet the bokeh is ok. I´m pleased with the outcome 😊

ian.underthesea: Sorry - and the catch lights of the sun shining through the ice. Please thank Sandra for us! 😍👍🙏

Posted: 2019 Jan 12 11:12:50 PM

_marisol: Yup, without Sandra, this shot would hardly ever have been taken. I walked past this spot until I heard Sandra say 'mamá, come check this out, there are nice pieces of ice on the branches', and she was right. She´s becoming my little helper hehe...😀

el murko: That's gorgeous, and a wonderful coincidence 🙏 Yes, it was Tina Turner, and one of the best Bond films imo 😁 Happy Sunday 🤩

Posted: 2019 Jan 13 4:28:49 AM

_marisol: Quite a coincidence indeed! The same park, the same shrub and may even be the same twig! There´s only this one shrub in the park. Was pretty cold and I had to take my pics barehand. Behind my back is the sea about 5 meters away and breezes from the sea felt like icy hell on my hands...damn! Yep, Tina Turner it was. In my mind, these new Bond movies are frigging boring, didn´t even watch the latest one. The old movies are super! Connery acting Bond and I am in awe! What charisma he has! Moore will do but surprisingly I like very much Pierce Brosnan but Daniel Craig looks too much Putin haha...thanks a lot! Have a fantastic week! 🙋‍♀️🌺

Posted: 2019 Jan 13 10:59:22 PM
el murko: OMG haha yes. I'm with you on Brosnan, but grew up with Moore. Can't beat Sean though 😎 Stay warm and have a brilliant time, and thanks too 🤩💜

sunrise *-*: Wonderful capture, the ice ❄ on the branch seems to be a diamond 🔹. It reflexes wonderfully the sun light

Posted: 2019 Jan 13 5:13:11 PM

_marisol: Well, they say diamonds are woman´s best friend and since I haven´t any (ok, I´ve got a tiny rocks on my earings) I had to make a fake one and took the shot of it. Nah, seriously I was very lucky as the sun´s location was just optimal when it comes to this piece of ice. I also took a few shots so that the sun was behind the ice. Haven´t check those pics yet. Hopefully they succeeded, at least the pics looked pretty cool on my camera screen but it always lies. Thanks for the comment & Have a nice week! ✨

bluehair31464: que foto encantadora..❤👏👏👏

Posted: 2019 Jan 16 1:31:14 PM

_marisol: Hola amiga! Qué bueno verte! Qué tal? Es muy frío aqui en Helsinki, -18 😃❄❄ y mucha nieve, pero estamos acostumbrados a esto. Me alegro que te guste la foto. Gracias! Ti auguro una meravigliosa settimana! Abrazotes 😃❄❄💗

Posted: 2019 Jan 21 9:15:56 AM
bluehair31464: Brr, qué frío ❄❄No sé si podría acostumbrarme a eso..😨 En mi ciudad aun no
está nevando, pero la temperatura está muy baja. Una buena semana a tí también!😘😘

Posted: 2019 Jan 23 7:57:59 PM

markiv: Amazingly coool😊👌

Posted: 2019 Jan 19 6:07:05 PM

_marisol: I was a bit lucky because the sun was just right for the camera. 3-5 minutes later the nearby building covered the sun. So, the old phrase 'the right place the right time' 😃 still applies. It's fricken cold now, we have -18 here in Helsinki, but in my former hometown 130 km to northeast from here, there the temperature is -22! Yay! I just visited there and took some snow pics...though my hands went so numb that had to stop taking pics after 20 min, besides the camera battery died real quick. -20 and your battery dies in 20-30 min. Thank you & have a great week! 😃❄❄💜
