But if you prefer something more exacting, then I would strongly recommend you take the time to investigate the work of Don Komarechka who is the best photographer of snowflakes in the world.

He has a book available called Sky Crystals as well as a web site, Flickr and twitter and you can also hear him on numerous photography podcasts including The Two Hosers.

Each image takes hours of work to produce to get full sharpness. Amazing dedication and mesmerizing images.

He has also developed a technique for capturing frozen soap bubbles
