The infinite beauty of an ice crystal

I spent some time over the last week trying to look at snowflakes under my flea-market microscope. And it seemed that it is true that each one is different. I couldn't photograph them, but wanted to put up some pictures here, most taken on Christmas morning, of the snow here. The most snow I've ever seen in Ireland.

Love these!
I noticed how the reeds have turned a light blue-grey amid the snow and ice in my lower boggier field. Really should photo them.
