You forget how beautifully ornate snowflakes can be until you see them up close, in full detail. This photo series from Andrew Osokin shows how stunningly gorgeous each snowflake is. They look unreal.
Andrew Osokin used a macro lens to capture all the little designs of the snowflakes. Some of them look so impossibly fragile, like they’re defying some law of gravity or something. And the prettier they get, the more fragile they look. Check out more snowflake pictures at Osokin’s LensArt site here. [LensArt via Laughing Squid]
