As individual…

as we are.

strikingly clear and composed of crystals

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.

I prefer to photograph snowflakes while outside in natural landscapes but on this day, with temperatures far below freezing, my windowpane provided an everchanging and unique perspective.

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

Happy snow day!
