Or maybe you have seen so many that they have ceased to be a novelty. Practicing before the turn of the twentieth century, Wilson A. (Snowflake) Bentley photographed snowflakes from the Great Blizzard of 1888, as well as numerous other snowfalls. His work is notable for its detail, precision and variety. As he said, "In this inexhaustible storehouse of crystal treasures, what a delight is in store for all future lovers of snowflakes, and of the beautiful in nature." Snowflakes immortalized. Good gifting.
