Snowflake macro: sandworm

Snowflakes macro shot, march 2012. Glass background with backlight.


This group resembles me sandworm from Frank Herbert's Dune novel, risen from the sand and growling, as it appears in movie and at some illustrations.


4 similar shots was averaged to boost signal/noise ratio and revealing subtle details.
