A Tiffany Broach or Snowflake?
Pearls, Diamonds, Sapphires of several colors, opals.
Or Frozen Water?
Of course I’m a poor photographer not able to afford the former and have to work the later. I think this happened by a partially melted the refrozen flake.
Photographers notes. There are any number of macro lenses out there but the lighting is the game. I’m using a handheld LED flashlight to get so much light onto the flake against a relatively dark background. So far this year, perfectly formed snowflakes have been rare. Pellets and very fine snow powder have been my choices but for a few. I have some time remaining in Winter up here in the borderlands so it’s a matter of time. Winter is coming.
Location: Bliss Dinosaur Ranch, Wyoming/Montana borderlands.
