one crystalline snowflake

crystalline [ˈkristələn, ˈkristəˌlīn, ˈkristəˌlēn]

strikingly clear and composed of crystals

Water vapor and dust.

Wilson Bentley, a Vermont farmer, was the first person to photograph a single snowflake. He was born almost one hundred years before I was making the task far more formidable. His fascination with his subject matter gave him the nickname Snowflake Bentley.

Snowflakes… truly unique and an excellent reminder of our own individuality.

Happy snow day!
