Because it’s Friday: The Wonder of Snowflakes

We’ve had some interesting weather in the UK recently including some early snow in places.

From childhood I’ve been fascinated by the intricacies of snow flakes; when I recently came across this set of pictures on flickr I was delighted. They’re all taken with the most basic of photographic equipment too, more information on how these pictures were taken can be found here:
