Lunar Surface

A snowflake photographed this morning during the final waves of a bitter storm that began yesterday, and a unique design amongst the others! This storm was full of surprises, and this is the first that I’ll share.

Take a close look by viewing large and note the crater-like center to this crystal, which reminds me of the surface of the moon. In a way, it truly is craters on the surface – caused by water droplets colliding with the snowflake and freezing almost immediately after contact.
