Hexagonal plate snow crystals
Camera: K3 
Posted By: fwwidall, 01-24-2022, 10:06 AM

Out shooting snow crystals this morning and the conditions were good for hexagonal plate crystals, rather than the more common & larger dendrities. The plates are just visible to the naked eye, down below 1mm, but they pack a lot of detail in their tiny forms.

I shot these with a Nikon 10X microscope objective hooked up to a bellows on my K3. Check out this thread if you'd like to see my setup.

Also managed to capture some columns and 'bullets' which are even smaller
