We know, there has never been snow in the country, and can only relate the closest are the skating facility in the malls or the movies. But this will not prevent us from imagining what snow will look like, more specifically, a very close up view, better still a macro view of a snowflake aided by technology and photography.
Snow is precipitation in the form of flakes of crystalline water ice that falls from clouds. Since snow is composed of small ice particles, it is a granular material. It has an open and therefore soft, white, and fluffy structure, unless subjected to external pressure.
Have you ever imagined that a tiny, tiny snowflake only visible to the camera’s prying lense will look these amazing!
And here are some of the macro photos of snowflake for your delight.
All macro photos were taken by Alexey Kljatov (Алексей Клятов), of Moscow, Russia. A photographer who has interests including snowflake macro photography, and high dynamic range images.
