Snowflakes
Edited on Tue Jan-11-11 10:08 PM by shireen
I've always been interested in snow crystals, and last year, discovered the work of Kenneth Libbrecht. WOW!

Some photos from his website, utterly breath-taking!

A meteorologist at the NWS in Buffalo, NY, has a cool facebook page for his snow crystal photography. I've been trying to get him to tell me his photo techniques, but he's been a bit coy about it -- guess he wants to keep it a trade secret, which is fine. :) All he's said is that his set-up is not as fancy as Libbrecht's.

Meanwhile, my pathetic attempts with a micro lens can be found here.... ;)
