I catch snowflakes and fossilize them, with cold and care and glue. It is generally quiet, tedious work and is often frustrating, but it is also a lovely exercise in patience and is quite satisfying.
When the snow is right, I bundle up, log the date and temperature, and select a snowflake I think I might like. Gently gently, I mount it on a frozen substrate (usually glass). This cycle is generally repeated until the snow stops. Then the wait begins for fossilization to finish; the curing process takes at least couple of days in the cold. Curing leaves a permanent record of the snowflakes, after which I may take pictures at my leisure and share what I find.
It’s a continuous experiment that keeps me marveling at the physics of good old H2O.
