Can You Guess What This Is? A Microscopic Virus, A Snowstorm, Or A Long Lost Grateful Dead Album

Canada's east coast and much of the U.S. northeast got hammered by a blizzard over the weekend, and for most people, it probably didn't seem all that beautiful.

But looked at from another perspective, the snowstorm was stunning. Here's that perspective.

During the blizzard, New York-based Redditor Brian Maffitt aimed his projector at the snow, and used a DSLR camera to capture the results.

Check out video of the snow projection in action:

He also took many still shots. There are a few on this page; you can visit his Flickr page to see more.

In case you're wondering, he was projecting the movie 'The Lorax' into the snowfall - although some people have commented that 'Finding Nemo' would have been more appropriate, since the winter storm was named Nemo.


Maffitt's photos reveal a whole other side of snow. That may not be much comfort to all the people who had to shovel it off their driveways, but Maffitt's created a beautiful set of photos either way.
