No Two Alike




These amazing photos were taken by The Snowflake Man, Wilson Bentley. He is credited with taking the world's first photomicrograph of a snow crystal on January 15th, 1885. He captured over 5,000 images of snow flakes during his life time, revealing to all of us that indeed no two are alike.
