Caption: This snowflake is a large specimen that manages to retain balanced growth across all six branches. While not symmetrical, it's difficult to find snowflakes so evenly balanced at this size. This crystal measures 7.3mm along the longest branches, and would be reproduced if printed 10cm wide at a magnification of 13x. Photographed on a black woollen fabric and focus stacked from multiple frames to allow the entire crystal to be in focus.
