Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Hot and Cold

Front Garden 01.12 (6)

This afternoon I was out in the front garden because I noticed that a layer of cold December mist was beginning to fall. Of course I had my camera with me, you never know. Then I saw that my neighbour had some Christmas lights on a tree in her garden. I was armed with ma 300 lens, so could zoom in on the lights. My “F” thing seemed to be tuned OK on the camera and this is the result in b/w with hot lights on a below 0°C background.

Heating coils

What could be hotter than a cooking plate with its electric coils. Just the surrounding glass top which stayed cool thank goodness.

If you live between the two flight paths leading to either Geneva airport or Zürich airport, you will definitely get a few planes zooming overhead. This one was letting off some steam as it passed over.

    • Often the long distance lens gives a good macro effect. The stovetop is now fine. The first guy couldn’t alter the size, but the second came a couple of days later, and ground it down to the right size. Not exactly a cheap repair, but the insurance will pay it all.
