Has anyone got ANY idea how they can photograph snowflakes? I would think that any amount of light heat would melt it immediately. Do they photograph them in a freezer, or what? I’m stumped.

cool some liquid plastic to which the hardener has already been added. The snowflake lands on the surface and sinks into the liquid, the plastic hardens, and you have the fossil of the snowflake which you can photograph at will.

Or catch one on black paper that is colder than 32 degrees and snap the picture with a flash. The heat from the flash is negligible and it’s so quick the flake has no time to melt anyway.

I dont get it… you can photograph them…
at least over here… looks puzzled
