How stunning are these macro shots of snowflakes by Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov? His extensive series features a wide range of designs in the form of hexagons, triangles, branches and cylinders capturing nature at it’s best.

Kljatov constructed an add-on to his camera in order to obtain the insanely close focus and illuminates the ice with a flashlight.  With this, he’s able to isolates single snowflakes and capture their unique and delicate beauty.
