STUNNING UP CLOSE PHOTOS REVEAL THE IMPOSSIBLY PERFECT DESIGN OF SNOWFLAKES

Snowflakes hold some of the most interesting, elegant, and intricate designs that can only be seen under a microscope or magnifying glass. Upon seeing them up close, one would find that each individual snowflake has it’s own unique flare and patterns that make it it’s own kind of special creation. I think that it is safe to say that every single snowflake essentially has a mind of it’s own when forming in the sky and falling gently down to earth.

Luckily, with help from an awesome photographer known as Alexey Kljatov, we are able to capture that fine elegance that snowflakes have. He has a wide menagerie of assorted snowflakes on Flickr and they are absolutely stunning pieces of work. Who knew that snowflakes were capable of being some of the most beautiful, tiniest, creations on earth?

Here are some of examples of Kljatov’s work.

Here we can see a snowflake that had formed already, but then chained off into individual snowflakes that connected together. It’s pretty cool!

Most snowflakes have a total of six different prongs that protrude out from the center of the grand design within.

However, we find rare occurrences like this one that has more than just the average six prongs. Some may even seem a little more bubble like than spike like with their “prongs”.

For instance, this snowflake!

Or this one here that has a total of six main prongs that stem from the center which then create beautiful leaf like structures.

Snowflakes are truly fascinating and hold a lot of imagination for being so small.

This snowflake has six prongs but are also bubble like too!

Even when snowflakes are conjoined together, they are essentially an art show of nature.

Sometimes we even get snowflakes like this one. It may seem like a regular snowflake at first, but on closer inspection we can find that this one is almost the likeness of a rectangle!
