Black and white photo of ice crystals forming on a branch in Northern Norway

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.

  1. Hi,
    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.
