   Designer Snowflakes    

This page shows photographs of real snowflakes that fell from the winter clouds. Click on any image for a closer look. I took these pictures at a variety of locations, including northern Ontario, central Alaska, northern Sweden, Vermont, and the Michigan Upper Peninsula.

If you would like to own (or gift) a large "coffee-table" book full of beautiful snowflake photographs, I recommend
The Art of the Snowflake: A Photographic Album.

There are many different types of snow crystals. Read more about them here.
