Yuji Obata's photographs of snowflakes falling

Yuji Obata was obsessed with the challenge of doing something no one had done before – in his case photographing snowflakes in freefall rather than on a flat surface without digital or any other manipulation. It took Obata five years to achieve but his breakthrough resulted in the capture of pictures that allow the snowflakes to relate to each other in space and size, creating dynamic compositions and scenes.

Ponder two that ever fell, were exactly alike. The Master's imagination is infinite. Amen!

Just like each one of us, each snow flake is different. While we can't get to know each snowflake personally because they melt so fast, people last a lot longer. Get to know more "snowflakes" in your life and see the beautiful differences they bring to life.

That must have been one long, cold wind storm to have made that. P.S.- I'm so glad it's Spring!
