Collection of triangular snowflakes

Triangular snowflakes are rare crystals - i have only few good photos of them from nine winters. Their unusual shape in fact is not triangle - it's hexagon with three longer and three shorter sides. Most of these snowflakes that i've encounter is small, not bigger than 2 millimeters by longest side, and often it is simple plates without branches. Still, this type is one of my favorites, and i look for them in every photo session.

Here you'll find already processed triangular snow crystals. When i'll process new snowflakes of this type, i'll add here links to them. Just click on photos you like, and they will open as full resolution versions:

Here you'll find collections of simple hexagonal plate and complex fernlike dendrite snowflakes:
