Photographer Matthias Lenke captured these wonderful macro shots of individual snowflakes to get a feel of the uniqueness of each single one of them.
This is what he had to say on Flickr:
I must confess that I never cared about snowflakes too much … until I read an article about the uniqueness of each crystal. So I took my gear to the balcony and made some field stacks. And yes … if you are able to have a closer look these fractal shapes are pretty fascinating. Each snowflake is a small geometric miracle.
