File this under ‘D.I.Y.’ and also ‘awesome’. Photographer Alexey Kljatov took an old lens from a Russian Zenit camera, flipped it around backwards, and taped it to a crappy point and shoot camera. Based on that description you would expect some pretty mediocre results, but his macro images of these snowflakes speak for themselves.

Lots more images below!

    These are stunning! Seems to have much to do with his post-processing as well as this DIY lensing…http://chaoticmind75.blogspot.ru/2013/08/about-averaging-identical-shots.html

    Is there a profession that revolves around looking at and analyzing snowflakes? If not there should be.There should be a lot of things.Such as: more snowflake pictures, giant snowflakes the size of the rims on those really weird cars (I believe they are called “donks”), tear-free shampoo that is genuinely tear-free, limbless animals that can float around like furry blimps, etc.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
