Several months ago, we posted some awe-inspiring images of snowflakes under a scanning electron microscope. Well, we’ve stumbled upon an equally wonderful series of snowflake images, captured by DIY photographer Alexey Kljatov.

Using an old Helios camera lens literally taped to a Canon digital point-and-shoot (Powershot A650), he captures stunning macro images of snowflakes.

Here are some of our favorites:

Snowflake 1

Snowflake 2

Snowflake 3

Snowflake 5

Snowflake 6

And here is Kljatov’s DIY macro photography setup:

For more information on his camera setup and to see many more wonderful snowflake portraits, visit Kljatov’s blog and Flickr.

There’s many incredible snowflake photographers out there, but the DIY nature of Kljatov’s setup is truly inspirational. When art calls, pick up the phone.

"What is knowledge anyway? It is not a physical thing; but neither is it a metaphysical ideal, like a perfect circle that can never be drawn, a mathematical constant with an infinite decimal tail, or a goddess of sublime beauty who never ages. Knowledge, eventually, relates to nothing but itself, and leads nowhere but back to itself." - Reverend Nemu
