This snowflake certainly is one of my all-time favorites. This is large snow crystal of stellar dendrite type (around 5 millimeters from tip to tip), slightly molten and partially covered with tiny bubbles of rime. It looks unusual, with it's massive tree-like arms and large hexagonal center, divided by six sectors. This crystal remind me tiny planet of Little Prince, which is teared apart by roots of six overgrown baobabs.
I was lucky with lighting of this crystal, and even frozen bubbles of rime (usually i do not like them), looks not too bad on these "baobab branches".

This interesting crystal was captured December 2014 on glass surface with LED back light, using additional lens Helios 44M-5. 11 identical RAW photos, taken as fast series, was averaged to boost signal/noise ratio of resulting image.
Also, i processed this snowflake in different colors, and vectorized it (variant on uniform background) to be able to stretch it to any size without loss in quality.
