Snow crystal

Super macro photo of an ice crystal. It has been around -20 °C for many days now so there are a lot of nice crystals in the snow piles so I thought I'll try to take a super macro shots of them and I think they worked quite nice.

 

About 25 cm of extension between the camera and lens and I calculated that the magnification ratio was about 7:1 (7x magnification)

 

Nikon D2H + Micro-Nikkor 55mm/2.8 + bellows unit + extension rings
