While the rest of the country has been suffering from severe snow storms Victoria has had relatively mild weather though it has been windy and colder than usual. After I mentioned a week or so ago that we had not yet had a freeze, the temperature has dropped so it is freezing every night. I've actually been looking forward to snow since it makes the environment more picturesque but we have none yet so I decided to make do with frost. Above is what it looks like in my back yard this morning.

Lenses: For those interested in technical stuff, I also went out this morning to test some of my old legacy lenses with an extension tube I picked up last week. The above was shot using a Super Multi-coated Takumar 1:2.8/105mm lens and pair of extension tubes totaling about 2 inches (5 cm.) The tubes and the lens are M42 mounts and I use them on my Sony with an adapter.
