Snowflake Images: Up Close and Personal

Well, we survived yet another southern snowstorm, and this was a good one! I think our total accumulation amounted to around 10″. With upper level temperatures varying, there was a combination of pretty wet snow clumps, sleet, freezing rain, and – my favorite – the perfect conditions to allow complete snowflakes to make it to the ground. Grabbing the macro lens, which allows for close-up snowflake images, we managed to capture a handful while the timing was right. We hope you enjoy!

Snowflakes from a previous snowfall are available with some of our landscape photography at our etsy store.

Snowflake Images:  Hexagonal crystal

What struck me in this photograph was the little hexagonal crystal – there is a star shape in the middle!
