Snowflake Bentley

Thanks to everyone who came to our annual Bedtime Stories reading night. One of the books we read was Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin and illustrated by Mary Azarian.

The book does a great job of telling Snowflake Bentley's story, but it includes only three of his actual snowflake photographs, and those are hidden in the back. Here are some additional photographs of his amazing images. And remember, what makes them even more spectacular is that these pictures were taken between 1885 and 1931, way before any sort of fancy photography equipment like digital cameras.
