Don Komarechka, an Ontario, Canada-based photographer:
"The process is unlike most other photographers who shoot snowflakes, and allows me to play with prismatic color and surface reflections to a much greater degree."
He take multiple images he's shot of the snowflakes (against a plain black mitten his grandmother gave him) at different focus distances and merges them together.
Normally, researchers observe snow crystals at moderate levels of magnification (30X-500X). The electron microscope, however, allows for observation at over 100,000X.
German photographer, Oliver Latta unlocks the surreal in this video of these snowy landscapes with a simple symmetry.
