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!
