How are you today ?
Today, I was browsing my art RSS feed, when I see this wonderfull article on Fubiz about snowflakes. (available in English by clicking on "Français" on the top right corner of the article )
A Russian photograph called Andrew Osokin succeed to give us impressive macroscopic snapshots of snowflakes !
Wait !! What ??? you gonna make us read something about photography ! But ... But... You're the Fractal Community Volunteer! not the photography one...
Yes I will ! And why??
Because I'm not only a fractal artist, I'm an art lover... and how do I improve my skill ?
By taking inspiration from other mediums, by looking for some new artworks everyday !
And this is quite interesting, believe me...you'll learn a lot by doing this !
So let's go back to our article...
To quote the article :
Those photos are focused on the beautiful and unique structure of snowflakes, the result offers us beautiful images including a selection is to be discovered in the future.
In fact yes !

Here are some of those cliché and the "same thing" made with a fractal software!

In the history of fractal art :
Koch snowflake (also known as the Koch star and Koch island) is a mathematical curve and one of the earliest fractal curves to have been described. It is based on the Koch curve, which appeared in a 1904 paper titled "On a continuous curve without tangents, constructible from elementary geometry" by the Swedish mathematician Helge Von Koch.
Here are his application on the snowflakes shapes fractal :
