    Ice Eye View


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     When it started snowing after the ice storm, landscape photographer Kristen Meister grabbed her macro gear and headed out to her Woodbridge, Virginia, backyard. “Scientists will pull out their microscopes and show you an intimate view of a snowflake, but nobody could see that with the naked eye. I wanted to capture things that you could still see with a human eye, but it was a blown-up view of what you could see,” she said of her macro ice photos, shot Dec. 9 and 10. “I wanted to show people that there’s beauty just outside their back door. You don’t have to go across the country to get this kind of stuff.”

    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    Take an up close and personal look at some of the ice from winter storm Dion. Scenic Traverse Photography gives us a macro view of some ice and snow formations from her home in Woodbridge, VA (near Washington, DC).


    These macro images offer a unique perspective on the ice and snow storm that has cancelled school and closed the Federal Government between December 9-10, 2013. The ice seen in these images is thinner than the width of a french fry!


    All images shot with a Nikon D800, Nikon 105mm macro lens, 1.4x teleconverter and extension tubes. Nikon SB-700 flash used.
