I think, this is best snowflake of hexagonal plate type that i've captured this winter. I enjoy this crystal's unusual structure: with "high tech" relief of central hexagon and outer pattern with six marks, which reminds ancient runes. This mix of "ancient and futuristic" in single snowflake looks really cool! And i was lucky with lighting of this pretty crystal, so all inner details are clearly visible.

However, this crystal was hard for processing, because i've got only 4 identical RAW photos for averaging (my SD card was almost full, when i saw this nice snowflake on camera screen), and in close proximity to crystal were some piles of ice debris: this complicates cleaning of background. But this specimen definitely worth all the trouble.

This snow crystal was around 1,5 millimeters in diameter: quite large size for it's type. It was captured on large sheet of glass with multi-color LED back light, using Canon Powershot A650is and additional lens Helios 44M-5, in january 2014.

This is alternate color version:

Also, i've created square picture in a frame with this snowflake on pastel background, along with three other crystals:
