Black and white photo of snow crystals in Northern Norway
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.

    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.
