Macro setting on my new camera

We had thick frost yesterday so I put my warm cardi on and headed outside with my new camera. I’ve always loved macro photography but I can’t get very good results with my iPhone.

My new Nikon Coolpix L830 is probably going to be on the macro setting more than any other after seeing the results of the photos I took of the frost!
I love it and I’m planning on taking the kids to Hartsholme Park or Whisby Nature reserve for a walk next weekend so I can get loads of photos ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great pictures. Frost is such a great subject. I like the fact that you can actually see how it is formed up close.

    Fabulous photos – me and my three year old did some close up studying of frost the other day, and it is truly beautiful – I tried to take a couple of pics, but my cheapo camera wasnt really up to the job!
