A Russian photographer has created a DIY camera rig that can capture excellent macro photos of snowflakes. 

Alexey Kljatov's setup involves taping an old Russian lens to a point and shoot camera with a piece of glass in the middle, and the whole thing is screwed onto a board. 

He uses an upside down stool with a piece of glass rested on top and the camera pointing face down to create these beautiful images of snowflakes, each one of them unique. 

For more information and to see more of Alexey's images, take a look at his blog
