Stunning Macro Details of Uniquely Beautiful Snowflakes


Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov isolates single snowflakes in order to capture the unique beauty of the delicate, icy crystals that fall to the ground during a snowstorm. The Moscow-based photographer gets quite up-close and personal to capture the geometric shapes and lines of snowflakes that often escape our everyday view.

His extensive series features a wide range of designs in the form of hexagons, triangles, branches, and even cylinders. Kljatov constructed an add-on to his camera in order to obtain the insanely close focus. He illuminates the ice with a flashlight and sets up a simple background of dark wool fabric. The intricately formed shapes are a stunning display of nature at its best.
