Snowflakes as you've never seen them before

Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov has a collection of fascinating photographs of snowflakes, in more detail than I've ever seen before.  He describes how he takes them in this article, which also contains many images.  Here's a brief selection of his work, reduced in size to fit this blog.  Click on each picture to be taken to a larger version.

There are many more photographs at the link, and in other articles and galleries linked from there.  Highly recommended for photography buffs, and for those who find snowflakes fascinating in their infinite variety.

Did you see *how* he's taking these shots? He's got a long lens reversed, and taped to a little digital point and shoot. Amazing. Ingenuity, and beauty!

Ingenious is right! And the cylindrical one just blows my mind!

Very nice. Reminds me of a recent news article and photo set - taking pictures of frozen bubbles.

Yes very interesting. I'm wondering how Steve Maxwell is coming along.
