I’ve found as I get older that the details in life have become more important and more interesting. Little things that I may have wondered about as a child that I can fully grasp now as an adult. Such as, what does a snowflake really look like? Sure, I bet most people can imagine what the idea of a snowflake looks like. A tiny, perfect crystal with a shape so intricate it looks like it was shaped by hand. Funny enough, that’s exactly what they look like. I don’t think many people stop to think about how banks of snow are made up fo these tiny, amazing little structures. To see more of these great microscopic images click here.
