You’ve heard the saying that no two snowflakes are exactly alike, but now you can actually see for yourself! Winter Weather Expert Tom Niziol is well-versed in photographing snowflakes and snow crystals and has a website dedicated to his amazing photos. Don’t know the difference between a snowflake and a snow crystal? Here’s how Niziol describes it:
“Snow flakes can be nothing more than one, individual snow crystal, but more often than not, are made up of several, sometimes hundreds of snow crystals.”
These snow crystal photos are breathtaking enough that they don’t need their own caption or explanation, so sit back, relax, and scroll in peace!
These photos were all taken of snow crystals off the shores of Lake Erie near Buffalo, NY. If the Winter Weather Expert describes Buffalo as “one of the snowiest and most beautiful winter locations on Earth”, you know it’s legit.
