Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera January 5th 2009. Click image for larger view.
We have had a very cold period here in the southeastern part of Norway with temperatures down to -18C (-0.4F) and the cold weather created tons of beautiful ice crystals. Here I have photographed a big one that the sun shone on creating nice, shimmering light. I recommend that you click on the image and view it large to see more of the fantastic details in the snow crystal(s).
Note: The photo of the ice crystal was taken in the southeastern part of Norway.
Check out this image of ice crystals forming on a branch.
