Snowflake Photo - Gardener's Dream
Photograph - Macro Photograph
This snowflake certainly is one of my all-time favorites. This is large snow crystal of stellar dendrite type (around 5 millimeters from tip to tip), slightly molten and partially covered with tiny bubbles of rime. It looks quite unusual, with it's massive tree-like arms and large hexagonal center, divided by six sectors. This crystal remind me tiny planet of Little Prince, which is teared apart by roots of six overgrown baobabs.
I was lucky with lighting of this crystal, and even frozen bubbles of rime (usually i do not like them), looks not too bad on these "baobab branches".
This interesting crystal was captured December 2014 in Moscow, Russia, on glass surface with LED back light, using additional lens Helios 44M-5. 11 identical RAW photos, taken as fast series, was averaged to boost signal/noise ratio of resulting image.
Also, i processed this snowflake in different colors (you'll find it in galleries "All snowflakes" and "Bright snowflakes"), and vectorized it (variant on uniform background) to be able to stretch it to any size without loss in quality.
Snowfalls of December 26, 2014 bring us nice amount of interesting snow crystals. I've already processed two more snowflakes: "High voltage" and "Winter technologies" (you can see them in galleries "All snowflakes" and "Bright snowflakes"), and have many other amazing specimens to work with!
