I appreciate art in all forms, especially in nature.
It snowed here properly tonight for the first time since 2016. When the fluffy stuff arrives, I have quite the nerdfest with my camera and super macro lens adaptor. My prey: shooting a perfectly formed snowflake.
Over the years I’ve caught one or two above average snowflake shots. Tonight was exceptional and I didn’t want to wait until morning to share.
If I had a better camera setup, this image would have been slightly clearer. However, I think it not bad for my ageing rig and makeshift tripod (my hand on a coffee tin).
I’ve never captured anything like this before. The light reflecting off the delicate ice crystal gives the snowflake a metallic sheen. When I initially caught the sparkle in my view finder, it wasn’t until I zoomed in that I could see I’d caught something special.
Although not yarn, I do hope you enjoy the beauty in these shots.
