More Snow Crystals
Posted By: fwwidall, 02-19-2021, 06:37 AM

I hope I'm not boring you all with these snow crystal images but I'm having too much fun shooting them ! Winter seems to be winding down here, with above freezing temperatures forecast for the next week so this year's harvest will soon be ending.

Anyway here's a few from early this morning. The temp was -8C and quite calm. Caught some very pretty crystals. All shot with the 10X Nikon microscope objective.

I like the Valentine's Day heart in the center of this one,



Incredibly delicate structure in this one. Shame my focus was slightly off



Wonderful structure in these two also.

Lovely and clear images, as the DoF is wide, did you stack these images?

Nope, they were all single shots. I have tried doing some stacking but the problem is that the crystals are sublimating too fast, even at -10C. I can watch the outer edges shrinking as I set up the shot.

Here's one where I did stack in Photoshop. This was a stack of 9 images. It seems to be two or three crystals on top of each other so I couldn't get the foreground and background both in focus with one shot. Happily most crystals are quite flat so one shot will usually do.
