Homemade rig captures extreme macro shots of snowflakes

Moscow-based photographer Alexey Kljatov is a keen macro photographer, and for the past couple of years he's been producing closeup shots of snowflakes. More recently he decided to boost the magnification of his camera - a Canon PowerShot A650 - by attaching a reverse-mounted Helios 58mm F2 lens. His inexpensive homemade rig delivers extraordinary magnification, revealing an incredible amount of detail in the intricate crystals of ice.
