Snowflakes

You may have noticed a slightly longer lull between posts that you have been accustomed to, but hopefully you will forgive me when I say that the arrival of a new baby in our house has (happily) consumed all of my time lately.

But with Christmas around the corner what better time to get back in the swing of things, and with a suitably wintry post about snowflakes at that.

The precise shape and formation of a snowflake is, amongst other variables, a combination of temperature, humidity, and amount of water, with each coalescing to give a unique outcome (ok, it is theoretically possible to have identical snowflakes, but it is so extremely unlikely I am going to disregard it).

I’ve never seen the developing formation of a snowflake, but Snowtime by Vyacheslav Ivanov gives us a glimpse at the complexity in this mesmerisingly beautiful time lapse video.

I recommend viewing full screen if you can.

More of Vyacheslav’s film work can be viewed here.
