Taken under high magnification using a microscope, these images bring a different world of snowflakes into view.
hmmm…lots of comments about the “Designer”… Having the idea that “God” is an architect..follows the idea that God made us in His image…Just about all our problems can be traced back to this idea because what it really says is that we have made “God” in our image. “God” is an infinite idea next to the small idea that “God” acts as we do.
Stu, Thank you for sharing your portfolio. Your work is lovely!
Hidden messages in water. Amazing book ❄️
The mechanical design at even the ultra microscopic level suggests this is all a predesigned and unnatural construct we are “living” within.
Rom 1:20 KJV – 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
The mechanical design at even the ultra microscopic level suggests that atoms are quite small, and their arrangements are unfamiliar to us below the level of normal eyesight.
Yes! I think you are saying that Design is a compelling reason to believe that a Supreme Designer does exist.
Those snowflakes look like they could have code embedded in them,
What type of code I’m curious now lol ty
Or do you mean ‘cold’?
Sacred Geometry is the study of how the Great Architect merges the unmanifested spiritual world into the manifested material world using a foundation of simple geometric principles. This is a perfect example. Water, (H2O) as it freezes forms these basic hexagonal forms. It is worth noting that each of us reading this is 60% water. This is the stuff of which we are made! The striking variations at such a microscopic level are a sobering reminder of how such a diveristy in humanity can be acheived using the same building blocks. The more we are aware of this, the more we treat each other accordingly. The beauty is in the variety!
Beautifully said ?
THANK YOU!! This is absolutely perfect. I can’t imagine why ANYONE would want to live in a world where we’re all the same. No growth would be possible, and we’d die of boredom. White supremacists need to read your post immediately!
So should blacks who keep calling racism and who are also guilty of it.
Must EVERYTHING be reduced to a discussion on race? I don’t disagree with your principles but do they really have to be brought up here? Can’t we just breathe deep and simply enjoy some things for their own intrinsic beauty?
randomization causes symmetry via point of view. Order out of chaos. As order demands chaos. Butterfly effects.
I’ve looked into chaos theory. It’s a mathematical construct used to predict certain specific phenomena. Does nothing to explain the origin of life. It seems that it’s often used by athiests as a broad stroke solution to a singular problem. One which they refuse to acknowledge. Snow flakes are a good example of what chaos theory can be used to model however,!
ANDROMEDA STRAIN!!!! Like the multi mutating virus in the movie, different within every increasingly fast generation. Does anyone wonder if they have personalities that choose their shape?
They look like fractal antennae, to me.
Just don’t eat the rare YELLOW snowflake
There is always one! Thanks Frank!
Thank you for the warning!!! lol. These delicate crystals look like steel girders in the microscopic view.
I might have to believe in angels as these look like heavenly manufacture!
Science, geometry. All that we know exists in nature.
But yeah, maybe angels are up there cutting out shapes with their little heavenly scissors….
You know it’s okay for someone to believe in something else. Even if it doesn’t make sense to you. It makes sense to them. Why not let them enjoy what they believe? It’s not hurting you. You could be spending energy on other things than waste it on bringing someone down.
The same thing could be said of you. And me.
If you want to get a thrill from how magical the universe is then you’re wasting your life dwelling on the crap humans have made up. Learn the escape time algorithm, Cantor, Godel and Tarski. Those things are true and leave fairy tales in the dust.
Nonsense. Look at the right wing American “christians” gagging for the end of the world to come, rationalising their hatred with reference to their religion. (Not of course that the comment above was like that, but it was you who jade a general point…)
Made, not jade.
You sound triggered and disturbed.
We are all an illusion. Some do not believe in some things because they do not see them. Others do. But to try to tell those others that what they see does not exist is the height of arrogance and self importance. Looking at the magnificence of creation it is the pinnacle of stupidity to say there is no greater intelligent force at work. None of this happens by chance. Scientists truly are the most dimwitted of the ‘intellectual’ classes and I would rather trust a visionary than all their so called evidence they insist upon because the vision manifests the future.
They truly do a spectacular job!
I’ve been photographing snowflakes for 13 years and see details that can’t be seen with the naked eye but not nearly the details that these photos show. Magnificent! You can see mine at http://www.snowflakesbystu.com
Wow, Stu, your pictures are amazing, thanks for sharing !
Nice stuff-beauty in symmetry.!
Great snowflake pictures
Thank you for sharing your site – your work is breathtaking, spectacular!
Those are some great photos, thanks for sharing!!
I love your photos of all your snowflakes! Beautiful
Your snowflake pictures ate beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
Your photos are beautiful! Looks like you may have been in part of a trip we did this past summer … Holland America’s 18 day tourcof Yukon and Alaska.!enjoyed your photos.
How do you take those photos? That’s amazing.
Just beautiful! Thank you for sharing the link.
Maybe I’ve seen them already online. I’ll check out your photographs! I love snowflakes too.
Amazing! I wonder if the snowflakes change over time due to different environments in which they are made OR are there an infinite amount of different kinds of snowflakes? Can snowflakes tell us more about climate change/global warming based on their shape? Is it true that “no two snowflakes are the same”? Can you find the same shapes of snowflakes on opposite sides of the Earth? I have SOOOO many questions. 🙂 Thank you for sharing your work!
Stu, I did go to your website. Magnificent photography. Thank you.
This is truly astounding. They don’t even look real.
Nothing looks real if you look closely.

and try blacksmithing, you’ll love it.
Get Bentley’s book. My favorite book. I’ve had my copy for 60 years. Still available cheap on Amazon.
I can appreciate all of these pictures and the flake formation, apart from that second picture. It looks like it was engineered. That is an incredible image, a snowflake dumbbell 🙂
I recently discovered that water can only form into 3, 6 or 12 sided flakes… any other number of sides or points are chemically impossible. ?
No, no, no. The symmetry of crystallized water at one atmosphere at temperatures we can tolerate is trigonal (three-sided). Most commonly twinned crystals are seen (six-sided). That is the symmetry of the smallest material that has the properties of ice crystals is trigonal. As micro crystals grow larger they may stay as single crystals and the shapes we see have the symmetry of the micro crystals OR they may grow in less than ideal conditions and the larger particles will lose the symmetry of the seed crystal. Then almost any shape is possible.
Is the chaotic structure visible in the closer pictures is interesting. Is it a result of electron bombardment during imaging which erode the ice crystals? I had thought that crystals are a continuous building onto the existing molecular lattice, which reinforce the symmetry. If not, then how does the crystal structure re-emerge when the structure is once again being deposited on?
I wondered that myself. I’ve never seen it before, but the e-beam would certainly explain it. Thank you.
Not your parent s snowflakes! Do not eat!
Didn’t Tesla invent the snowflake?
Al Gore did.
Fascinating. Such symmetry!
Very cool, like they are created with different baking molds…
