There is a young amateur photographer in Russia who revels in taking photos of snowflakes.

His name is Alexey Kljatov and he lives in Moscow.  His "studio" is the small deck attached to his apartment where he sets out a piece of woolen fabric and, using a toothpick, gently transfers his snowflake to the cloth where the threads hold it firm.  

Alexey uses a Canon Powershot camera that he has fashioned for just this one project. It allows for the extreme close ups that we see here ... and he seems to prove that the old saying "no two snowflakes are alike" is true.

Amazing photos. They really are individual and beautiful aren't they?

Very good to see and not on a high end camera either. Although he may have done high end things to it by the sound of it. I hope your doing well Ginnie.

They are so pretty and delicate. In Moscow I would think he can get a good supply of snowflakes, lucky that he is not in Hawaii… They are really lovely. I hope your New Year will be lovely too.
