Would you believe me if I told you these fascinating photos were taken with just a simple point-and-shoot camera? It’s true. These incredibly detailed images of snowflakes were taken by Moscow-based photographer Alexey Kljatov using only his 12.1MP Canon Powershot A650. To begin with, Klajtov set his little camera to the standard macro mode and began shooting the snowflakes against a backdrop of glass or wool. These photos are proof that art shouldn’t be limited by money or means. The only limit is determined by the artist own ability to creative problem solve.
