Snowflakes, so pure in their design, really are one of nature’s true marevels. Made of ice, nanometers thick and individually unique with exquisite detail, it’s easy to forget that they are the child of mother nature and not pulled from the depths of our imagination.
Well, one avid photographer Alexey Kljatov has a unique and incredible talent for capturing the short existence of the beautiful personified creations. Most of his photos are displayed on Flickr.
“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.”

For anyone out there you wants to try this beautiful technique, Kljatov details his precise camera set-up and principles for shooting snowflakes on his blog. You can find it here.
