They're Beautiful: Microscopic Closeups Of Snowflakes

December 10, 2013


This is the third snow-related post in a row. That must be some sort of Geekologie record. One that will definitely won't be going down in the history books and probably won't be remembered by a single person after tomorrow. God willing, I'll drink it out of my memory before bed tonight. There are bunch of microscopic closeups of the snowflakes that fall on Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov's balcony. Clearly he has some nice quality snow. Here? Here it never gets cold enough to snow, but if it did it would be acid snow. And not the kind you could catch on your tongue to trip balls and talk to Frosty, the kind you could catch on your tongue if you really hate your tongue and want it to suffer. You know that expression, cutting off your nose to spite your face? Does that actually work? I only ask because these f***ing cheeks have really been pissing me off lately.

Keep going for a bunch more.









Thanks to Francis, who told me that people are like snowflakes: no two are identical. Except anonymous internet commenters, they're all dime-a-dozen jerkbags.

    I wonder why these always form symmetrically. Think about it. they start off growing from the smallest dot of water. And they keep growing in the same way. What's to stop one side from changing differently than the other side?

  • captaindash

    These are carefully selected. Most snowflakes are ugly as shit. Most seem to have been somewhat created symmetrically, but get beaten up on the way down/landing. Almost all of 'em have 6 points though, which blows my mind. Maybe 1% of flakes are really beautiful like this (trust me, I've looked at many thousands while shooting snowflake pics. It's a real pita, but very much worth it)

    i demand that these forms created by nature to be studied, their resistance, their properties, see how we can apply these forms into our livings

  • Alexe Emil

    If you can see this and still believe in god & bullshit like that, you're an idiot. :D

  • Closet Nerd

    Why take pictures of snow flakes on your pubes?

  • Darren McCoy

    Some of them look like futuristic holographic disks........sent from the future!

  • MustacheHam

    using cloud technology. :P

  • Ry Keener

    I think one has the symbol for the Galactic Empire on it.

  • Matt Fricke

    I was just going to say that! Imperial Snow...

  • Guest

    i like the cylinder one

  • grim reaper

    did any body see the superman sign without the s? or the captain America shield?

  • zin

    So... are we to assume that these snowflakes are falling on his pubes?

  • Nancy

    Thank you for my belly laugh of the day!!!

  • Bling Nye

    Yes, and he's really trying to get a shot of his penis, but the snow flakes keep getting in the way.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    It's very telling that he was using a microscopic lens...


    There's only one conclusion to draw from these photos....Aliens are sending the snow and when we catch it on our tongue it infects us with nanobots that make you poop weird colors. I'VE SEEN IT MAN.
