Snow crystals in New England

We were in New England for the holiday and were treated to a beautiful, gentle snowfall on December 25th.  It was cold enough that the snowflakes didn't melt immediately.  Views of individual snowflakes were exceptional against a thin sheet of ice on a small woodland pond.  

This was my first time trying to photograph snowflakes -- I have a lot to learn!  But check out the variety of shapes and structures below.
