Mandalas: Alexey Kljatov’s snowflakes

Copyright 2013, David J. Bookbinder
Just a quick note to let you know about the fascinating, mandala-like snowflake photographs of Alexey Kljatov. Using simple, inexpensive equipment (a Canon point-and-shoot camera and a standard SLR lens reverse-mounted to the Canon), he has assembled a spectacular collection of photographs taken from his balcony.

Here’s a link to his gallery on Flickr: Alexey Kljatov on Flickr

Here’s one to his website, where he describes how he creates these images: Snowflakes, night city and other things

More anon,
