Beautiful photographs of snow crystals

I stumbled across this website via Digg.com. Snowcrystals.com is a website all “about snow crystals and snowflakes — what they are, where they come from, and just how these remarkably complex and beautiful structures are created, quite literally, out of thin air.”

The snowflakes and crystals photograph collection is so beautiful, it almost makes me want to cry; I have the same sense of wonder and awe when looking at photographs of distant galaxies.

These snow flakes have such exquisite and delicate beauty, and each one unique. It makes me want to praise God just looking at them.

And we have the audacity to complain when it snows!
