Ornament
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Ornament
Ornament
EF100mm, f/5, 1/4 Second, -1/3ev, ISO100, RAW
I usually like to wait until Dec. 1 to start up my "Christmastime mood"... But I went to Michael Schunke's studio
(Nine Iron Studios; my favorite glassblower) this weekend, and ended up with some of these faceted, optic ornaments.
What caught my eye immediately, was a "daisy" effect, created when you look through the bottom; I'll post that image soon.
This is the top of the ornament, with the glass loop for the hook, sitting on a hardback book of a similar color.
11-07 Finalist, D&M

Thanks, everyone! The ornaments are simple pieces, compared to the masterful creations Michael makes. But these are just so wonderfully sparkly and clear.
Thanks Kara... I should actually be home on the 10th, which should improve my odds of remembering to participate in the theme!

Thank you, Sue, Susan & Patrick! I had the ornament on the book, on a table near my patio doors (with sheer curtains) for lighting coming in from the right side of the image.
