Snow Flakes II

Same note as yesterday

For basic informations on Snow Flakes you can go there.
I found this interesting site too on The Snowflake Man.

It snowed a good part of the day today.
I wondered what I could photographed well by a similar day.
As I am in visit in my father and far from the city full with pollution which is Montreal and as I had carried with my camera my closed-up lens, I thought that I could perhaps photographed snow .
And I was surprised to be able to photograph crystals of snow.
I do not know if this kind of photographs is allowed here. I hope that yes because I have several of them to present. If I receive a word from my friend Robert asking to remove it, I will do it without bitterness.
These crystals rest on a hedge of thuyas of 50 years old.
I still remember when child, with my father and my uncles we left with a car and a trailer and shovels.
We had gone in farmers in the countryside close to Granby to gather with their permission young cedars.
The farmers said: "take all the thuyas which you want", and that did not cost one centů at that time...

I hope that you like this picture.

I benefit from the occasion to wish you all a very Good Year 2005 filled of discovered and major joys.

Luc, snow is nature and this is a true wonder of nature that most will not see.
Excelent post of the true, north strong and free, Canadian Snow Flakes.
Proof is right in your image, each snow flake is different from the other, like Zebras.

Well done

Superbe, malheureusement la partie floue a l'avant derange, il serait bien de pouvoir isoler les flocons.

Great macro with the addition of the close up lens. This is certainly a part of nature, and I think it should stay on this site.
Very well done. The details of the snowflake are so well focused.

Hi Luc
I like the frozen diamonds, and the cristals are just out of this world. I think we need a new caregory, say weather or the four seasons, because this is definately TN, just as Geology is part of this site.

Well seen, Luc. This is as "natural" a shot as any on TN. It is up to us to help others see the brilliance of the natural world.

This is a real beauty Luc, but I see you started painting the center :) These formations really amaze me and I hope to see and learn more about it.

Very well done and thanks for posting. May you and your family have a wonderful and prosperous new year.

tres belle macro Luc !
les details sont bon et les petits reflets de lumiere sont vraiment exellent.
j'adore vraiment ;)

Fantastic. I was never able to make such an interesting picture. The background is well composed, the coloru are nice. I am wondering if next time you could try to use a smaller aperture to increase the depth of field. I noted that you used a speed of 1/250. May be with 1/60, which is still good for sharp pictures, you could use f16 or f32 aperture and have more of the foreground in focus.
