Snowflake Landscape

Uploaded by: stoneygirl

Monday January 28, 2013

Auburn, MA (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This gives a pretty good view of the landscape of a snowflake and all the etchings that make it so unique and beautiful. Just above the flake you can see another type of flake called a rod. Kind of looks like a nail. The blue color is the reflection of the background in the flake. I just love my blue tarp.

Hi EmilyR, I try to tilt the glass just a tiny bit to avoid getting flash back. Trust me when I say it happens until I find just the right angle. Glad you're enjoying these beautiful flakes.

Your snowflake pics are exquisite, and your technique is ingenious. I'd love to know how you prevent the flash from reflecting on the glass.

Hi pterodaktil,
I have a very "high" tech way of shooting snowflakes. I use a piece of glass and a spring clamp to hold it with so my hand temp doesn't warm the glass. I have a macro lens that came with my camera that is just perfect for these shots. One final piece of advice is make sure you're warm because shivering is not conducive to a good shot. LOL. As you can tell I'm actually as low tech as you can get. Mother nature does all the hard work and I just have fun photographing it. Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments and I'm so glad you enjoy my snowflake photo. I love sharing them with everyone.

Liking the shapes and semi-opague with added coloring. Blue adds the drama and mystery, where did my little friend come from and why did he bring a sword. Love a good mystery. LOL

About stoneygirl

stoneygirl

My name is Debbie and I live in Central Massachusetts. I am a mom of 2, a grandma to Jace and a "Mama Stone" (as I'm called) to about 25 rental kids as I call them. I consider myself to be a serious maybe even (as all my kids would say, "Obsessed" photographer. If it moves I photograph it, if breaths I photograph it, if it doesn't breath I photograph it and if it doesn't move I photograph it even more. Ok, so my kids are right, I'm obsessed. I never leave home with out it, my camera that is. I've always loved photography but as I've headed into my mid-life crisis period I have begun to open my eyes to more of the wonder around me. Why it took so long I don't know but look out world I have arrived. Now I have a thirst to make up for lost time and I love Wunderground and all of the wunderful photographers I get to share my world with. I absolutely love seeing everyone�s photos from around the world and for that I thank all of you for your wonderful generosity for sharing them with me and us on this great site. Smile say cheese now!!Large Visitor Globe
