Thank you Jario and Ronnie. While standing on someones dock at the lakeshore one foggy frosty morning last week I looked down and saw this chain and lock covered with frost. I liked the contrast of the frost against the rust and forgot all about the

Since I didn't have a tripod with me and there wasn't that much light, I just set my camera down on the dock and used that for my support giving me the low angle/perspective you see here. Apreture priority at F4.9, 1/19 sec, Macro mode. #3834

Heather, this shot is great, it is all in the seeing and it goes to show that defferent weather conditions make for interesting photos. Well done without a tripod!
