This is relatively large crystal, around 5 or 6 millimeters in diameter. if you look closely at it's center, you'll easily classify it: this is snowflake of split plate type. I encounter these crystals not too often, and usually they look quite like "normal" snowflakes at first glance, and we'll see difference only when inspect them closely.
This "chaotic" snowflake was captured on large plate of glass with LED back lighting, using Canon Powershot A650is with additional lens Helios 44M-5, reversely mounted in front of built-in camera optics. 11 identical RAWs was averaged to boost signal-noise ratio of this picture.
Snowflake photos are available as stretched canvas prints, acrylic, metal, wood and framed prints, posters, greeting cards, Apple iPhone and Samsung Galaxy phone cases, throw pillows, duvet covers, shower curtains, tote bags, t-shirts, beach towels, portable battery chargers, carry-all pouches and coffee mugs. My collection includes over 100 macro photos of real snow crystals and constantly grows. Just click my name (above left) and see all snowflake images.
