First snow in England and some beautiful macroshoots of snowflakes

Hello lovelies!

Yesterday we had our first snow down here in South East of England and I managed to try my new lens and took some makro shoots of snowflakes. I really like them so I wanted to share them with you. I know it has nothing to do with nail polishes but it's about beauty of something ;)

  1. Wow, amazing, I thought you had to put them under a microscope to see them, could you see this with the naked eye? Brilliant photos.
