M/Alphabe-Thursday

Mosaic #1

M is for MOSAICS

Ontario is not a mountainous province but we do have ski hills.

Mosaic #2

Sometimes snow makes lovely patterns that are fun to photograph.

Mosaic #3

At times snowflakes are so big that I challenge myself to take macro shots of them.  I'm glad I still have a few more weeks of possible photo ops before spring to perfect this.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I love the skier mosaics, and the good eye on the brick snow patterns, and I'm impressed by the snowflake macros.

Oh Camera girl I do love your photos. Hug B

I really love the first one. I have never tried snowboarding - just skiing.

Heather said...

Beautiful mosaics! I especially loved the one with the bricks and snow!

Pam ;) said...

Love the second mosaic of the paths.

Pride In Photos said...

The middle image is very cool how the snow made the pattern in the street medallions.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

These are all wonderful, but my fave is the snowflakes! So awesome, the patterns and designs of each one.

The Artful Diva said...

Great idea and execution!

Judy said...

These are great, I love mosaic #2.

Oh these mosaics are brilliant! I love the 2nd one, such a beautiful way to capture overlooked things (though of course the ski slopes and snowflakes are so classic:)

Betty Manousos said...

Steffi said...

Very nice and creative mosaics!Thank you for sharing!

RedPat said...

You do so well on these theme days!

Lowell said...

Mea culpa! It's working fine now. So, I'll say you are a mosaic champion. The ski hills don't look too bad. I might be tempted to give them a try. But on the other hand, why not just take pictures?

Rose said...

I like all the mosaics but that second one really appeals to me.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Love the macros- I've been taking lots of those closeups...no snow around here though.

NatureFootstep said...

love the pattern with the snowflakes. Really looking good. :)

Valerie said...

Delightful and imaginative mosaics - those snowflakes are especially eye-catching. Thanks for sharing (and dropping by my blog). Have fun with your macros!

Kay said...

Wow! These are all really terrific! All three are wonderful mosaics. We don't get enough snow that I've ever studied individual snowflakes like you've done; these are gorgeous. (Not gorgeous enough that I long for snow, mind you.)

Rocky Mountain Woman said...

Great wintery mosaics!

Tracy Cook said...

Love those skiing pics . Sadly o more skiing for me ever boo hoo

Carol L McKenna said...

Wonderful M post -- love the bricks, especially.

Along These Lines ..... said...

Snow flakes are amazing, and so are your images!

Leovi said...

Yes, a wonderful mosaic of snow, good framing!

Craver Vii said...

Only bunny hills for me. I like the geometric shapes in the middle collage, and those snowflake details are out-of-sight!! Very nice.

RamblingRound said...

Those macros of the snowflakes are astounding, and I'd much rather ski a hill than ski a mountain.

Esther Joy said...

Marvelous! Love what you did with the snowflakes!

edenhills said...

I think you've perfected your snowflake shots. Great idea for M. :-)

Gillian Olson said...

Great mosaics, really like the snowflakes.

Randy said...

I like the ski shots. Better than being at work.

ladyfi said...

What fun. And those snowflake shots are exquisite.

Indrani Ghose said...

I like the last mosiac.

Love this M post! These are fantastic! hard to pick a favorite!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

A very cool threesome EG, for a person like moi, who hasn't seen snow since childhood, the snowflakes are mega magical!

Lola said...

Splendid photography - such artistry in those snowflakes!

Great post!

Judie said...

When Rod was a little boy in Edmonton, he kept hitting trees on the slopes, so he stuck to ice skating! Such good work with the macro shot!!!

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I love the snow in the path. What a wonderful series of pictures!

Hilda said...

Oh wow, your snowflake shots are fantastic! I always thought those ice crystal shapes were too tiny to see. Good to know that I was wrong.

Maria Gagliano said...

Great shot!
I love that idea for "M"

Very pretty mosaics, Ms. E.G.T.G. ~~ I would not have guessed these would be where in the elements and where people could trample on them.
