These snowflakes were photographed across Aspen/Snowmass over the past two seasons as part of an ongoing project to capture the exquisite fragility of snow. Snow is the lifeblood of the mountain west from the powder we ski to the meltwater we drink. By looking more closely at snow, by focusing in on these individual flakes, I hope we may be able to more clearly envision our vulnerability to climate change.
