This snowflake certainly is one of my all-time favorites. This is large snow crystal of stellar dendrite type (around 5 millimeters from tip to tip), slightly molten and partially covered with tiny bubbles of rime. It looks quite unusual, with it’s massive tree-like arms and large hexagonal center, divided by six sectors. This crystal remind me tiny planet of Little Prince, which is teared apart by roots of six overgrown baobabs.
This interesting crystal was captured December 2014 in Moscow, Russia, on glass surface with LED back light, using additional lens Helios 44M-5. 11 identical RAW photos, taken as fast series, was averaged to boost signal/noise ratio of resulting image.
