Yvonne sent me a NYTimes article on photographing snowflakes. I don’t use such hi-tech gear or grow my own snowflakes. Using simple gear, I collected a few flakes from the sky–not from a snowdrift or surface–on suitably cold days. Yes, this was a multiple day project.
Here are the images, usually done with photo-stacking to increase the depth of field. All images taken on a tripod with natural light, an f stop of f8, ISO 200 and shutter speeds running into the seconds with mirror lock-up. Thank you, Yvonne, for the inspiration for this post and thank you Wendy Beswick for the original challenge.

We’d like an informative, inspiring show & tell. Writers, send us poetry, lyrics, a short piece or excerpt.
