-piece of winter- by fangedfem -piece of winter- by fangedfem
This photo might not be technically perfect, but photographing a single snowflake is not the easiest thing in the world! I just love this shot-- especially how another tiny one, you can barely see, is in the lower left corner. It took us A LOT of shots to finally get it - my fiance has much patience ;)

Snowflakes fascinate me. They are such a fleeting moment of unique beauty- often hard to appreciate when they gather in such large quantity tho. Much like some people. Sometimes the simpliest things can remind you to always take the time to appreciate the precious elements of life :heart:

Snowflakes are truly amazing works of nature. And it's so interesting how the temperature of the air drastically affects the way the crystals form, and the ultimate outcome of the flake.

I take it this was a macro lens, but could you share which one?

Thanks!

They really are! It took so many shots but we finally were able to get a decent one and lucky enough to get the other oh so tiny one in with it =) The lens used was a Micro Nikkor 60mm one.

I think this one is perfect :-)
The dof really adds something to the picture so the watcher is focused only on one part of the flake.
I love it that you have captured exactly the tiny area of focus where there is a 2nd flake in the left part of the picture :-) :+fav:
