Snowflakes in Photographs by W. A. Bentley

This book is filled with a couple thousand individual portraits of snowflakes by Snowflake Bentley. I am so in love with this book! 

And I am amazed that an untrained photographer 100 years ago was capable to capture this miniature world so well. And that his work is still considered very important by scientists today. 


There are no words in this book. Just pictures. 

But the pictures are enough.

Every single flake is worth staring at for a while. 

Anyone who can take an everyday object and make them incredible is my hero. 

So elegant.

And just for fun, at the end of the book there are pictures of frosty things

I want to be W.A. Bentley when I grow up.
