The other morning we woke up to an overnight ice storm. Sidewalks and paths were covered with ice. But with the sun coming up, the trees were glistening with the ice. I took a series of images out my back door with my iPhone. Since I could not walk out there I was using the iPhone 11 Pro with the 6mm lens (full Frame Camera Equivalent of 52mm) but added different amounts of Digital Zoom with the iPhone. Also most are multi-image panoramas to get the composition I wanted. When adjusting the iPhone files in Adobe Camera Raw I could see what amounts of digital zoom I was using. Camera Raw also gives me the combination of 6mm iPhone lens with the in phone digital zoom amounts in comparable Field of View of a Full Frame Camera Equivalent Focal Length. So the Featured image is 3 images, shot with the 6mm iP11 lens with 401% Digital Zoom for a final Digital Focal length of 207mm. Just thought it was interesting for comparison to a Full Frame Camera.

As I was photographing Ice Bubbles close to the shoreline, I noticed a little further out the sun was giving the ice a nice warm glow. I had forgotten to bring my Polarizing Filter to add some color to the ice, so the warm sun added some color. So I picked an area to shoot a multi shot panorama showing texture and the warm color from the sun.
