Dragged out the macro lens and used a black sock on a tv tray for a snowflake landing pad.

Nice Pics. Can I assume all of you photographing snowflakes are familiar with the work of Snowflake Bentley?

(that website seems flaky right now for me?)

Thanks for sharing!

In a better world, I'd add an extension tube and ring flash to my game.

Nice! I'd be worried about moisture and that strobe, or maybe it's better sealed than the older models I have

That is so neat!

Seeing that magical glimpse into the wonders of nature allows us to realize that beauty is all around us and to make our own effort to connect with it.

Again, thanks.

…gotta admire H2O at the micro level in its frozen state! (even if it does take a macro lens to capture it!)

Wonderful photos.

Back before I had cataract surgery I was really nearsighted (glasses were -14.5 in one eye, I think -13.0 or so in the other). There were a few times I was out in snow with my glasses on and was able to get a close up view of snowflakes by looking under the glasses frame, but not quite as close as that.


Good luck.

Interesting article on magnification here:
[www.scalemodelguide.com]

One diopter = 25% increase in size. So a 3.5x magnifier used with normal vision would be approximately equivalent to my -14.5 diopter correction in my glasses. Article notes that the for 3.5x magnification you'd have to work within 10 cm of the lens. My focus range without glasses was approximately 1" to 2" from the front of my eye. I suppose if eyes had a wider ability to focus, I could have seen things that were farther away, but they would have looked tiny (like looking through a telescope or binoculars backwards).


Good luck.

What? Didn't shoot them on a corner of your Elvis on black velvet print?
