No Two Alike: Snowflake Photography

12/11/2013 By:

Watch this beautiful slideshow of photographs by Kenneth Libbrecht from his book The Art of the Snowflake. The twelve slides are stunning in their color, delicacy, and, of course, symmetry. Each slide has a brief explanation of the snowflake which explains properties of crystals and why snowflakes can look so different from each other. Find out about stellar dendrites, sectored plates, and how local environment affects the snow crystal as it falls through the sky. What a great reminder of the incredible beauty to be found in the natural world.
