Intricate brush strokes

It was one of the coldest days we’ve had in a while but the laundry in the sauna was scheduled for the wash so I bundled up to head out and retrieve it. Am I ever glad I did! As I stepped up on the sauna porch, I noticed the front door window was a laced with significant amount of frost. Immediately, I grabbed my iPhone (of course I had it with me even though the sauna is only a dozen steps from our back door).

And of course, I grabbed the laundry and exchanged it for my DSLR , tripod and another layer of warm clothes.

A dime pressed against the glass gives scale to the delicate lines.

By setting a folding screen with black cloth behind the door and holding another up directly behind the camera, I was able to minimize any distractions in the glass for a crystal clear shot.

The tiny details fill me wonder, gratitude and reverence.
