Winter Wonderland: Don Komarechka's snowflakes

Based in Ontario, Canada, photographer Don Komarechka likes to explore the world that we cannot see with our own eyes. Every winter he produces an incredibly detailed photo series on snowflakes. A homemade pair of black mittens provide the backdrop, and a high quality macro lens combined with very fast shutter speeds, extension tubes and focus stacking give him the ability to capture fleeting geometric patterns of his subjects in the few moments they exist.

Each entirely unique crystalline structure is reaveled in a way that very few have seen before. Read more about his technique in our Q&A and click through to see more of his work.
