I have been trying really hard, but it always snows at night or when it's too warm.
While shooting emerging tulips today, there was a heavy flurry. It was too warm (-5C) to safely isolate the flakes, but too windy (30-40km/hr) to keep my eyes working, so I couldn't get the focus right. I posted these since they may be the last this season. Thanks for looking. Debbie

Superb shots Debbie, I only ever find refrozen crystals myself.

Great work, what magnification are these shot at?

Many thanks.
The quick answer is about 1x.
The long answer is that, I used a 100mmL with the 36mm extension tube, initially set at closest focus length (so magnification should be 1.5x or so) hand held. But I had to keep switching to fresh snow (really quickly before it melted). I was awkwardly crouching on my flower bed trying not to step on the new shoots, and I ended up using the focus barrel to pull back. I couldn't get the distance from the exif data.
I cropped and then rescaled before posting. For my curiosity, is this something I should mention whenever I post?
Debbie
