Snowflake Photo - Vega
Photograph - Macro Photograph
This snowflake was captured at March 25, 2015, along with many other excellent crystals, and without any traces of melting! Such cold weather, perfectly fit for snowflake macro photography, is unusual for late march in Moscow.
This snow crystal, though it looks like "common snowflake", in fact is quite unusual: it is big (around 6 or 7 millimeters from tip to tip), but have very simple shape for such huge size. And if you look closely at two upper arms, you can notice that they are slightly differs from four others; examining the center of crystal in full resolution will tell us, that this snowflake is typical example of split plate crystals. You can find great description of this type in Kenneth Libbrecht's snowflake classification.
For this picture, i've captured 8 identical RAW photos as quick series, and averaged them to boost signal-to-noise ratio. Background: dark grey wool fabric, natural light from winter's cloudy sky, camera Canon Powershot A650is, with external optics Helios 44 as additional magnifier.
