Wilson A. Bentley: Snowflakes
You might admonish me at the mention of winter, but with snow-thirsty friends wishing fall would hurry up already, I've already got one eye to the mountains. In any case, Pacha Design has this great post on "The Snowflake Man," Wilson A. Bentley, and the photos were too tasty to pass up.
"Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated., When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind." —Bentley
