DeviantARTist E-The-Zombie and her sister Fezhead11 tempted fate by creating this awesome Dalek snowman. It looks so great that we’re wondering if one of the tools they used was a sonic screwdriver. Here’s hoping their creation behaves and the Whovian sisters make it through winter without anyone being exterminated.

With the weather getting colder (that is, for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere) it’s high time we shared more images from the Department of Awesome Snowflake Photography. 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.
