Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

Snowflake 9

Snow is awesome in my book.  I like going for walks in it, eating it, throwing it, watching it, and rolling in it.  Once in college, I even had sex in it – a moment I very recently remembered after years of convenient suppression.

So I love these snowflake photos from Alexey Kljatov, a Russian photographer living in Moscow.  I know they say no single snowflake is the same, but it never ceases to amaze me – so many intricate designs with such symmetry.  Beauty is infinite. (I need to copyright that for my future cosmetics line.)

If you’re interested in taking a stab at some macro photography yourself this winter, you can!  Kljatov took these on a 6 year-old point-and-shoot camera!  Click here for his tips on how to make your own cheap, homemade rig!!

Here’s to hoping for a White Christmas!
