After a couple hours of extensive research and examination, I have determined that these photographs are indeed real. In fact, there is an actual science to this type of photography. Most of these images are actually a series of photos combined to remove "white noise" from the final product. After all the reading I have done, I have found this to be absolutely fascinating. Following are links to the author's page and some relevant information for skeptics:

I highly suggest you take a gander at the artist's main page and look at all of his work. It is exemplary.

wait...HOLD THE **** UP...

These snowflakes are actually real? I always thought they are fake since they are like cartoon snowflakes you would see on christmas shows.

Why do snowflakes get so symmetrical??

It's something to do with the shape of water molecules, and the way they adjust to each other. For a more detailed explanation, try this: www.doublexscience.org/why-are-snowflakes-always-six-sided/

I was kind of hoping it would end with a picture of some white girl on Tumblr.

Ice and snow can be so beautiful.
Frost can make so many peculiar phenomena.

I dunno what it's called in English, but we call these hoarflowers or ice flowers in Danish.
It happens when the air is moist God I love that word
and the temparature then freezes the night over, making these flower-like snow crystals literally grow out of the water as it hardens on some glass surface.
This picture is from a car glass.

Macro photography is best photography. I cant get THAT close though, but I managed to get this so I'm still pretty happy.

Can anybody explain to me why exactly it is that snowflakes have perfect rotational symmetry? I would have expected the ice crystals to grow more randomly than this.
