Snow crystals are, without argument, beautifully crafted gems, each of them distinct from all others; jewels from the sky, presenting their beauty briefly before sublimation erodes their features and facets. Snowflakes, truly and indeed, are both enchanting and evanescent. This book presents the artistry of snowflakes through a gallery of macro images into which the reader may immerse to ponder the wonder of water and the infinite combinations of hexagonal expressions created when a molecule of water vapor becomes a sui generis snow crystal. The book contains a tribute chapter to the life and work of Wilson Bentley; the first person to successfully photograph a snowflake (in 1885), and to whom this book is dedicated. There is a chapter on the science of snowflakes; how they are formed, and the physics proving the theory that no two snowflakes in the history of the world are identical. Lastly, the book explains how I collect, isolate and photograph individual snowflakes using nothing more than a standard compact camera. If you, the reader, might be inclined to engage in this hobby, you won't need a DSLR and you won't need a microscope. But you will need the same passion, persistence and patience found in Wilson Bentley.
