Triangular snowflakes are one of my favorite types. Though most of them are small, like this crystal (around 1 millimeter in size or slightly bigger), they attract my attention any time i see them: these triangles are easily noticeable, thanks to their unusual shape, and visually differs from other snowflakes, even with naked eye! In fact, these "triangular" crystals are hexagons, with three long and three short sides, but they looks like triangle for our eyes. This snow crystal have slightly irregular shape, resembling a trapezium, and contains interesting internal pattern of straight lines and "arrows", pointing outwards.

I used glass background with LED back light and external lens Helios 44 (as additional magnifier) for my camera Canon Powershot A650is, powered by CHDK firmware. 8 identical RAW photos was averaged to boost signal-to-noise ratio of this image.

Here is version in alternate colors:
