Indigo Gradient

By Nathan Myhrvold
Limited Edition

This snowflake, set on a purple and indigo gradient background, was photographed with a custom-built, high-resolution snowflake camera.  Photographing snowflakes is a bit like watching sand fall through your fingers. The difficulty of it is not just technical but also a matter of timing. Snowflakes sublimate—their sharp features degrade as the ice crystals evaporate over time, making the window to capture them fleeting.  With this in mind, the camera system Nathan developed utilizes a cooled stage as well as pulsing LED lights (which is not a standard operation) to reduce the heat they put out and increase the speed at which he can capture the image.
