Now, I'm tired of real snow, and QuiltyCousin SURELY is, living over in the OriginalPortland.(Three blizzards and counting)

THE ART OF THE SNOWFLAKE
But, both of us love looking at these beautiful crystal photos. These don't have to be shoveled!
Libbrecht has some amazing photography inside. In his book, he writes that he collects some of his flakes on big black boards.

Some he transfers to slides for his microscope using a paintbrush.
Some he catches directly on the slide.
|No two alike|
