Macro Monday: More Snowflakes

A little stack of snowflakes. These are very similar to the shape of the first ones I took a couple of weeks ago.
The second photo shows some very different shapes. I know last time I mentioned that I thought they looked like rhinestone jewelry. The snowflake to the far right in the bottom photo definitely looks like a rhinestone brooch to me.

For more Macro Monday join Lisa here.

These are just wonderful. You are so right about the one on the right. It's just awesome. :) Well done my friend. :)

Not easy to capture the delicacy of snowflakes Carletta. You have to work quickly. I'm supposing because I've never attempted macros of snowflakes. Nice job.

How cool! I am so glad you got your shots. The only snow I've seen this winter was slushy and wet as it fell.

I agree about the snowflake to the right of the last shot - it DOES look like a pin. Glorious shapes and no two alike.

The little one on the right is an unusual shape, it does look like one of the rhinestone brooches we used to see. Great photos Carletta.

I haven't looked at a snowflake that close up since 1st grade. And that was a long time ago. Makes me want to find my magnifying glass and some snow.
I am loving these pictures.
What kind of lens are you using?

Amanda said...

How beautiful is that! I have never seen such clear snowflakes ever!

Awesome shot!! Wish I could get that kind of shot too. Happy Monday!

Carletta, I just don't know how you do this! I couldn't when it snowed big flakes last week! :)

These are fun! I was hoping to get to do more of them this year but it hasn't worked out. Oh well, at least I can enjoy yours!

Patti said...

These macro photos are fantastic, Carletta. How did you do this?!

That's way beyond my skill with the camera.

Snowflakes are beautiful, especially close up. But, I hope we don't see any more this year.
