There's nothing like a blanket of fresh snow to make for picturesque scenes around the Pacific Northwest, but among the snowmen and sleigh
rides are hidden secrets of the breath-taking beauty of Mother Nature.

But photographer Alexey Kljatov has unlocked some of those secrets, using a unique camera set up to get intricate photos of individual snowflakes, which show off an amazing level of detail that each snowflake carries. They say no two snowflakes are alike, and these photographs show why.
Kljatov lives in Russia -- no stranger to snow in the winter -- and has set up a camera on his balcony to capture each individual snowflake's glory.
