Caption: This snowflake has broken off a branch on impact with the ground, and the branches are covered in rime - super cooled water droplets that collided with the snowflake in the air. The background is a black woollen surface and the crystal is photographed with reflected light. 58 separate images are combined together to increase the focus across the entire crystal. Crystal measures 4.7mm across and the image is roughly 20x magnification when printed 10cm wide.
