The Snowflakes

I just read an article about Michael Peres. He is an expert at photographing snowflakes. In the article, he was saying how he does it. First, he lets them land on a baking sheet lined with black velvet.

The process also involves different kinds of light, and a microscope. So it is nothing I will be doing. Here are some of his results, REAL snowflakes!



And here are a few by other people. This first one is on a car windshield.



We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand, and melting like a snowflake. ~Marie Ray

The intricate details in every tiny snowflake is simply amazing. What an awesome God we have who takes the time to design all of this.
