This snowflake has grown faster on the bottom branch than the other five branches, resulting a very unbalanced crystal. The top branch also appears to be positioned a slightly different angle due to it's less reflective surface - this could be caused by the crystal breaking on impact with the ground. Along the long size, the crystal measures 5.6mm. If printed at 10cm tall, the resulting image who have a magnification factor of 16x. Photographed on a woollen background, this image is an edited composite of multiple images at different focus points to achieve complete sharpness across the image.
