Wednesday Whim - Let It Snow

all images via My Modern Met via Andrew Osokin

I have to admit...I have never been in the snow. Well...I guess the first time I visited New York with my friend could count. We got off the train from Pennsylvania and when we walked out of the train station, there was light snow. But, it lasted for mere moments. 

Otherwise, I'm a snow virgin (lol). I have this idealistic idea of being in the snow but I realize that living in it is different than visiting it! When I came across Moscow-based photographer, Andrew Osokin, my fascination with snow intensified. These macro photographs of snowflakes are amazing! The time and precision of his work is evident in his photographs. What really stuns me though is the delicate and intricate detail he captures of the snowflakes that fall from the sky. It's incredible to see up close and personal. 

For those who live where it snows, does it make you take a second glance at the snowflakes that fall around you?


  1. Oh WOW, I can't believe those are real snowflakes! I also can't believe you've never been in snow! That truly seems crazy to me! Playing in the snow is one of my fondest childhood memories, and yes, I've definitely taken the time to look at snowflakes, although you can never see this kind of detail. Thanks for sharing this! These are truly spectacular!

  2. Haha, for someone who has never been in snow, you would love it... for about 10 minutes. Or maybe that's just because I live in the northeast and it doesn't phase me anymore. :)

  4. I love snow, but I hate driving in snow. So I must say because I have to drive to get to work everyday, most days, I hate it ;) But it is so pretty to watch when you are inside all cozy with some hot chocolate :)

  5. Snow is very rare here in Atlanta,GA, when it happens it's a very big deal, even when it's only an inch or so.

  6. I love snow! But only for skiing! Hate cold weather! Xoxo

  7. These photos are beautiful, really showcases hot great nature is. Living in snow, it's pretty at first but whenbit gets grey and slushy it's such a pain. Having to switch your tires to winter tires is also a pain. Other than that I don't mind it.

  8. I live in Colorado and so I usually get more than my fair share of snow! These images are AMAZING though, so beautiful and intricate! Its fun to think when you cut snow flakes out of paper for decorations, those really ARE what those little flecks look like! Hope you're having a great day & thanks for sharing!

  12. These pictures of snowflakes up close are amazing! It's always hard to remember that snow is made up of these beautiful, intricate designs. I could never imagine living somewhere without it! Even though I'm used to seeing it every winter, I'm always amazed by it every single time it falls and covers the ground. So breathtaking. :)


  13. I suppose I have to think this, having grown up in Minnesota...but snow has to be one of the most beautiful things in the natural world. I just lose my breath every time.

  15. Its so sad, it hasn't snowed here yet, and I'm really hoping it will soon!
    Thanks for your encouraging words, they mean so much <3 I know everyone goes through this...I just never thought it was this hard. But nothing time can't heal.

  16. These photographs are SO really shows that no two snowflakes look alike! I've grown up in snow - I can't imagine living anywhere where it doesn't snow, even if I do complain every winter about driving in it ;)

  17. Those photos are breathtakingly gorgeous! Snow is extremely pretty to walk in while it's falling. However it is 2 days later, once it has turned to either a slushy mess or a frozen hazard to carefully get around, that it is unpleasant!


  18. These are gorgeous...I wish I could capture shots like this!

  19. We're getting snow tonight! If I could, I'd send some to you because frankly, I'm not a big fan of it! When it snows, I can't get anywhere, haha. Hope I'll be able to make it to college tomorrow :)

    anyway, these photos are amazing! x

  20. Wow, those snowflake pictures are so cool. You always find awesome photographers!
