Chelan Snowflake by snak Chelan Snowflake by snak
My first snowflake attempt. Shot on the hand railing of a friend's deck in Chelan Washington. Tempurature about 27 degrees. The original background was white snow. NOT good. So I grabbed my Dasani water bottle, which has this translucent two toned blue label you see here in the background of my snowflake image. I cropped this image down to about 70 percent of it's original size. The lens is a Tamron SP AF90 F/2.8 Di 1:1 Macro.

This macro stuff is very difficult. I know what you mean HellFireDiva. [link] I nearly froze my butt off to get this image. I am so hooked on the micro world of marco. Ever since I picked up my new lens last week all I can think about is, what can I can shoot with my new marco lens.

great idea with the water bottle. very resourceful. I've been trying to figure out the best background to shoot macro snow on. Fantastic shot. Freezing to get the shot definitely makes it a greater accomplishment.

I find close-ups of snowflakes extremely fascinating, and this picture you've taken is just amazing :aww:
Smart thing with the water bottle, the blue tones in the background makes the flakes really pop out, and it's a beautiful colour!

if i say that the photo is amazing it will be too little!
i'm too lazy to go and write the same comment on every single macro shots form yours so i'm just gonna say it here.
i think you are an exceptional artist with tons of great ideas and too much talent. when you see something so beatiful like your photos...it just makes your day brighter, to feel that out there is something so natural and pretty...

Wow, I don't know what to say. That's the nicest thing anyone one has ever said to me on Deviant. Thank you so much, you made my day! And I didn't fave you just to return the favor. You really do have some great work in your gallery. Stay young at heart and mind and you'll be an amazing artist.
