This is a book of WONDERFUL photographs of snowflakes taken in different lighting and locations. I intended to just look at the pictures but I was so fascinated by the pictures that I had to read the captions to find out how they managed to get that shot. There isn't much text but what was there was very interesting, and the photographs are AMAZING. Check it out!

Beautiful book of snowflake photography!!! Perfect to go along with Snowflake Bentley and see just how far the photography of snowflakes has come. Even my husband loves to leaf through it Now he and my children notice what kinds of snowflakes are falling from the sky "Look, these are those weird rod shaped snowflakes. . . look Mom, plate snowflakes."

I was fortunate enough to pick up the large, hard-cover version of this book for a mere $5 at a sale, and I consider it to be money well spent. The illustrations are simply beautiful - simple but elegant. It is the ideal book to put on your coffee table so you can flick through it in between other things or over a cup of coffee.
This is a photograpic album of snowflakes. So gorgeous, so unique it blew my mind. We examined it this winter and had so much fun.
