Nice... I always wanted to photograph snowflakes, and though the weather report did not warn of heavy snowfall I want to be prepared for next winter.

I still don't know what is the best way to get the clearest, sharpest, greatest photos. Snowflakes have a size of ca. 5mm (0.0197 inches). That means to use a lens that is optimized for ca. 4:1 size, and it must not be overly sensitive to low temperatures. Or a microscope and a camera adapter, but that would limit the possible perspectives to one only, and, of course, we are all artists and not scientists...
