First Snow Crystals of 2019
Posted By: fwwidall, 01-10-2019, 10:48 AM

Winter has been off to a slow start here in southern Ontario. Temperatures have been mild, and very little snow.

Today it dropped to -7C and there were a few flurries so I headed out to the garage and try the latest version of my 'snowcatcher' for the first time.

Last summer I bought a Cine Yashikor 13mm F1.9 and finally I got to try it out on snowflakes.

First impressions are favourable. I'll attach a couple of uncropped images to show how much magnification I'm getting. I'll also attach an uncropped image with a 50mm lens for comparison.

This year I'm using the base off an old Zeiss microscope to hold the glass plate with the snow on. It really helps with the focussing.

I quite pleased with my first test shots. Hopefully we'll head into the deep freeze soon and I'll be able to capture some stunning images.

Fred.
