Macro photos of snowflakes show impossibly perfect designs

Macro photos of snowflakes show impossibly perfect designs | Art, Photography, etc | Scoop.it
One of the true wonders of the world are snowflakes, tiny designs made of ice that are so individually unique, so detailed, and so spectacular it's hard to comprehend that they happen naturally and aren't pulled from the depths of our own imaginations.

Photographer Alexey Kljatov has a special talent for capturing the brief life of these beautiful ice creations. He features many of his snowflake photos on Flickr. Kljatov says, "I capture snowflakes at open balcony of my house, mostly on glass surface, lighted by LED flashlight from opposite side of glass, and sometimes in natural light, using dark woolen fabrics as background."
Joanna Gillespie's insight:

Snowflakes are simply magical, and getting to see them in this much detail is, to me, rather like being handed the keys to a wizards tower.

 

Done with a super creative mix of a macro lens 'attached' to a camera though interesting means, plus some DIY skills and imaginative lighting.

 

Check out the blog for some amazingly interesting details on his process as well as more of these macro, verging on macro images.

Photographer Shoots Angry Lion Photo Moments Before It Jumped At Him To Attack | Art, Photography, etc | Scoop.it
Atif Saeed, a nature photographer in Pakistan, just had a close encounter with a lion and captured it all on camera! A lion at a safari zoo park near Lahore locked eyes with the photographer, and right before the lion charged at him, he managed to capture these menacing and stunning photos.
Joanna Gillespie's insight:

And this is why really wildlife photographers learn about th animals they are shooting before p***ing them off and not being able to read the very blatant body signs that they are in big trouble.
This man was incredibly lucky not to be hurt or killed and is a terrible example to all photographers and safari zoo visitors!
