This January starts really good for snowflake photography in Moscow: it is cold and snowy almost every day. I’ve already captured lots of new interesting crystals, and will process them soon!
However, January 14 was a little warm for good shooting: there was snowfalls, and many nice crystals, but my glass plate simply can’t cool enough: even after 30 minutes of cooling outside, snowflakes slowly melts on it. So, instead of shooting sequences of identical shots for averaging, i captured sequences of melting stages. For shooting these series fast enough, i’ve temporary disabled RAW writing, and captured only JPEGs.
Here is three GIF animations: first one assembled from 20 sequental photos (~6 mb), second one – from 29 photos (~7,5 mb), and third – from 32 photos (~8 mb):
It is interesting to see how some snowflake features transforms into air bubbles, and remains inside waterdrop.
