These are taken with a Canon S2 IS and a Raynox macro lens and lots of patience. I don't take as meticulous an approach as Snowflake Bentley or Kenneth G. Libbrecht, so many of these snowflakes are broken or half-melted or at an angle so parts are out of focus. But I hope the images are interesting even if lacking in documentary value. Mostly these are best viewed at large or original size!
