Wilson A. Bentley's Snow Crystals...

Wilson A. Bentley, with his Bellows camera and a microscope,
photographed the first images of single snowflakes.
In 1931, the amazing images he captured were recorded
in the innovative book Snow Crystals. Over 2,500 images
represented Bentley's fascination.
A few weeks after his masterpiece was published, Bentley
caught pneumonia and died after walking through a blizzard.
So sad, but true.
