Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera January 13th 2008. Click image for larger view.
The temperature dropped for a few days here in Northern Norway and ice crystals like the ones you can see in the picture were forming in sheltered areas.
I made a black and white version of the picture because I think it fits very well in snow and ice scenes.
Check out this black and white picture of snow textures made by the wind.

Its a cool shot, literally because of the ice 🙂
Worth enlarging to see the clarity of the crystals.
That looks amazing…
Wow. I’m glad I stopped by here. Impressive work!
I love following the weather. This image of ice crystals really caught my eye. I also like the other photography…especially the aurora photos.
There was a fellow in Vermont, USA who made it his life’s work studying crystal formation. In fact a pioneered micro-photography in the late 1800’s. You may find this work interesting here:
Keep posting the pics (my wife likes them too!)
We enjoy visiting daily.
That is a beautiful jewelled shot.
Dear Thomas: very beautiful photos.
