  2. Beautiful images of the snowflakes. The dark lighting and blue gives these a particularly eerie quality that I like.

    PS: I answered your question about my WW photo :)

    1. Thanks, Amanda! I'm always looking for new surfaces to catch snowflakes and not melt them too quickly. Blue glass was perfect for these shots, but I had to stick the dish in the freezer for a while first!

    1. All of them are with a macro extension tube on my macro lens, Di. All were shot on a blue glass plate fashioned for us by the husband of one of my co-workers. The third one down was before the glass got cold enough to preserve the snowflakes as I shot. The flake began melting right away, before I could focus. I think the texture of the glass shows in some of these photos.

  7. I not too long ago found your site from a friend and love your patterns and photos of snowflakes!! I'm working on the Kings Cross one and was ecstatic when I got the first crown done, my husband looked at me like I was crazy! Do you have a pattern for a 7 sided snowflake? I remember reading that your mom liked them.

    1. Thank you, Angela, and welcome! I had to giggle when I read your question about seven-point snowflakes. No, I've not written a pattern for one, but almost every snowflake may be made into a five-point star or a (choke) seven-point snowflake with minimal adjustments just by miscounting the number of points. King's Crown probably would take some adjustments to become a seven-pointer because it's so big, but any of the smaller ones probably could be converted very easily just by making seven points instead of six.

    1. I love how they transform, melting slowly, Sue. It does give them different (inspiring!!!) designs!
