I've never done snow crystal shots before, so when it snowed the other day in temperatures around -3C, I took the chance. It was a quick tinker, catching a few flakes on a wooly hat then quickly snapping them with an MP-E 65mm at around 2.5x hand held. Since I could barely see the flake details at that mag, I scouted around various shots and cropped in (very) tight on any that looked half decent. This is about the best of the bunch, showing two different kinds of crystal in one shot (dendritic and planar).

Another thing off the list Smile

Excellent, really captures the crystal structure of the snowflake. Especialy interesting as I experienced the same Malvern snow.

Very nice, Beatsy! Thank you for sharing!

Did you use flash? What F/stop did you use?

Thanks. Yes, twin head macro-flash with diffusers in TTL mode. Aperture was f/11. About as far as you can stop down the MP-E before diffraction blur becomes irritating (at pixel-peeping scales).
