Description: “This is a macro of snowflakes on my jacket. I spend my time photographing my surroundings, hiking and sharing my passion for New England. I am self-taught.”

Camera info: D90, manual mode, 50 mm


Various purple hues dominate this close-up photo. The shape of the snowflakes stands out against the texture of the fabric. Also, the snowflakes’ different shade of purple helps isolate them from the fabric. Noticeable is the single complete snowflake and parts of the others that are out of focus due to the limited depth of field.
