Can't say this was my idea ;-) Thanks to Candis Sabean for the inspiration.
Had some light fluffy snow last night. The sun was shining on the new snow so out this morning with the tripod and the maco lens. No crops here, full size images. Only spent a few minutes outside in my t-shirt and have since discovered my camera was set to an insane 1600 ISO - DOH!. Might try this again and put some effort into it.
