Flower of the Midnight Sky
A perfect center resembling a black flower, and wind-blown branches growing faster in the left side than the right to break the symmetry. One of my favourites.
The darker center is created because of the angle of the flash – just the right angle to reflect on the branches, but it misses the center structure because of it’s flatness. The center of this snowflake likely grew slower, and then as the environmental variables changed, the branches began spreading.
There is a lot that can be told of a snowflake’s life simply by looking at it!
