"A Snowflake," above, and another, below. Shot by Nick Loven and shared in the Boing Boing Flickr pool. And further below, "Snowflakes on a car windscreen."


  1. I grew up (and now live) in the South, primarily Georgia, and was completely shocked when I spent a winter in Minnesota. I honestly thought you could only view a snowflake’s structure microscopically because I’d never seen one before. I don’t know if south GA just never got the right kind of snow or if I just never happened to look at the windshield on a car at the right time but seeing snowflakes with MY OWN EYES was a revelation. They’re so pretty!

  2. I went out during the recent storm trying to get pics like this, and completely failed. I can appreciate these much more now that I know how difficult it is. 

    1. I’m sorry but I just don’t think we need to see snowflakes with missing bits, especially in the tourist areas. It gives a bad impression. They need to be taken off the streets and put into ‘places’n’stuff.
