Ice Stars – January 8, 2017

I’m in hibernation mode…

No clear skies for some time now, lots of snow, very cold, not much to do…

It’s the perfect time to take a few shots of…snowflakes.

These images were all taken from my balcony, on a microscope slide that I’ve placed  outside my window for a few minutes at -10 degrees Celsius.

Equipment: Canon 550D with a SMC Pentax M 1:2.8 28mm inverted lens, 60mm extension tubes and Nissin MF18 Macro ring flash.

Note the lovely rainbow colors at the edges and small features of the flakes.
