I'd be interested in the technique that you used to capture these amazing shots.

The secret technique is making sure you're not trying to shoot real snowflakes!

These are snowflake window clings. They are a gel-like substance. In this case, they were back-lit by a late afternoon sun, low in the sky but not setting so no color cast.

The photos were processed in lightroom to add a sort of asymmetrical vignette, take a little warmth out of the color temperature and overall make them a bit grittier looking.

They were taken with the sharpest lens in my arsenal, the Sigma 70mm f2.8 macro.

I like how you photographed them - there's an abstract quality to them that goes with real snowflake photography. Well done!
