Beautiful macro photography of snowflakes…wowee!!
Macro shots of natural snowflakes, snow and hoarfrost crystals (printable versions here: snowflakes for print). I wrote small post about my shooting technique in blogspot: english / russian. There is great guide to snowflake types with excellent snowflake shots. Wikipedia article nicely explains formation of snowflakes, symmetry and uniqueness. If you are interested in snowflakes photography, i recommend to view also: Biography and work of Wilson Bentley, pioneer of snowflake photography; Don Komarechka, canadian based professional photographer, who recently published great book about snowflake photography, physics of ice crystals formation and many more; And great snowflake collections of authors: Pamela Eveleigh Detached Retina Fred Widall Mark Cassino David Drexler Kenneth Libbrecht Linden.G and in group Awesome Snowflakes.
