These amazing photos were taken by Russian photographer Alexey Kljatov, who adapted his camera in order to achieve remarkably close-up focus on individual snowflakes after they’ve fall on the ground. He illuminates his shots with a flashlight and the background texture is dark wool fabric.
Alexy’s images reveal the unique geometric shapes of each snowflake with such astonishing clarity that it’s easy to forget just how tiny they really are. Visit Alexey Kljatov’s Flickr stream to view many more of his remarkable snowflake photos.

I watched this last night. I strongly recommend everyone does. It just solidifies my belief that you need to do your own research before advocating or giving to a particular charity.
When it comes to cancer related charities, make sure you are giving to one that puts a lot of their research dollars towards prevention research, and specifically research into what is causing these cancers.
