Stunning Macro Photography of Snowflakes by Alexey Kljatov
Due to the many changes in temperature and humidity the crystal experiences during its fall to earth, snowflakes form in a wide variety of intricate shapes. It is very unlikely for any two randomly selected snowflakes to appear exactly alike even though we probably can’t tell with our bare eyes. That is the reason many people are crazy about photographing snowflakes – collecting as many shapes as possible. Apparently, Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov is one of them who devotes himself capturing the unique beauty of the delicate, icy crystals. In order to get clear shots of those intricate geometric shapes, Kljatov has to fall to the ground during a snowstorm and carefully isolates single snowflakes. Take a look at Kljatov’s collection, these intricately formed shapes are a stunning display of nature at its best.
