29 incredibili macro fotografie di fiocchi di neve


I fiocchi di neve non hanno sempre la stessa forma, cambiano a seconda della temperatura in cui si cristallizzano. Se la temperatura è bassa, il cristallo è informe, mentre cristalli così belli e grandi si formano solamente in caso di una fortuita combinazione di temperatura e quantità di vapore acqueo nell’aria, da -12°C a -16°C.

Un fotografo russo, Alexey Kljatov, senza attrezzature troppo avveniristiche ha ottenuto dei risultati incredibili.
