    That’s a great snowflake Roxanne. A near perfect shape. All the ones I have seen had bits broken off!

  • Thanks Charles, we’ve had no shortage of snow in these parts….double the average snowfall for this time of year! This morning we woke to a temp of -38C with a windchill of -45C!!!! I’d settle for pretty little snowflakes but this windchill can go away any time soon :) Happy New Year from Alberta, hope to see many more of your great photos in the coming year.
