Macro Photography – An Amazing Collection of Magnified Snowflakes

Alexey Kljatov, a Moscow based photographer with a passion for taking beautiful macro shots of snowflakes. The intricate details, shapes and patterns of the snowflakes are simply mind blowing. Although I know that no two flakes are alike, I was not aware of the amount of detail that each flake boasted. What is more surprising is that most of these flakes are only a few millimeters in diameter.
