Caption: Snowflake with very dense branches and chiselled features. The top branch is growing on a different plane in behind the other branches, allowing branches to overlap. Certain colour in this image is caused by refraction as well as thin film interference, and even a slight amount of lens aberration. Rime is also present towards the outer branches. Specimen measures 6mm in diameter and when reproduced at a size of 10cm, the resulting image would have a magnification factor of roughly 15x.
