Snowflakes

 

I was browsing my blog roll early this morning and Jen at Cake Wrecks, after doing one of her normal, hilarious posts about cake decorators’ attempts to do snow flakes (see “Total Flakes” here), directed her readers to a site where real snowflakes have actually been photographed.  Amazing!

If you would like to take a few minutes to be awed by God’s handiwork in the intricacy of a snow flake, go here:

You can even read about the details of how the photographer does it, like what camera, lenses and settings he uses and the challenges he faces — like keeping the room cold enough for the snowflakes not to melt but not so cold the photographer freezes!

Thanks to Jen at Cake Wrecks and fwwidall for giving my Saturday a great start!

    Looking at that picture, I am truly in awe of God and how he creates such detail in His work! Absolutely amazing! Thanks for sharing that photo!
    We are experiencing about 2 feet, yes FEET, of these beautiful snowflakes here in the DC metro area today! Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow….
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    Julie — That exactly the same way I thought when I saw such detail in that snowflake! Stay inside and warm during your snow storm so that you can just enjoy all those flakes from the inside looking out! 🙂
