Snowflakes up close

Look at this amazing story about a farmer that documented snow flakes with a camera. Not just any camera! Amazing, isn´t it?

More than 5300 different flakes. A warm and interesting story about photography.

In 1904, Wilson Bentley, who developed an apparatus to photograph snowflakes in the 1880s, beseeched the Smithsonian to care for his collection. – http://wapo.st/2jvEKAa

This Vermont farmer’s snowflake photos were a lifelong passion.

I found it in The Washington Post.
