One of the true wonders of the world are snowflakes: tiny designs
made of ice that are so individually unique, so detailed and so
spectacular, it's hard to comprehend that they happen naturally and
aren't pulled from the depths of our own imaginations!
Photographer Alexey Kljatov has a special talent for capturing the brief
life of these beautiful ice creations. He features many of his snowflake
photos on Flickr. Kljatov says, "I capture snowflakes at open balcony of
my house, mostly on glass surface, lighted by LED flashlight from
opposite side of glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark
woolen fabrics as background.“
The following photographs are some examples of his impressive work
Just think: there are
‘gazillions’ more hexagonal
designs, since every
snowflake is unique!
Kljatov describes his technique for shooting
snowflakes in a blog post, for those of you
who want to try your own hand at this.
