Day three of my Five Day Black and White Challenge, I was nominated to undertake this challenge by Lisa Kimmorley.
I ran out in the snow with my 90mm macro and all my extension tubes. The flakes were really big and I managed to get some close up. This is not a perfect macro of a snowflake but the black and white highlights the texture and the contrast helps force the focus.

Ben, I really like all three images so far. The textures are wonderful. I love the crystals in the snowflakes, as well as the depth of field. Looking forward to the rest!
Thank you, I am glad you have been enjoying the challenge. I love exploring textures with my black and white work.
Nice image, it is not easy to capture a snowflake.
No, these were already melting after hitting the already snowy balcony. I think I will need to improve more to get a single isolated flake.
I think it gets easier when the temperatures are really low.
Possibly, it has been cold here but not the usually freeze we have at this time of year.
Thank you very much, Ben, for following Gwichyaa Zhee. Looking forward to visiting Aperture64 often and getting to know you better!
