The Art of the Snowflake: A Photographic Album by Kenneth Libbrecht has the most amazing photographs of snowflakes. Libbrecht is a physics professor and an expert in snow crystal photography, snapping them under the microscope and showing how individual each flake truly is. Over 400 snowflakes are featured in this book, set against plain backgrounds so that their shapes are well defined and the most precise details can be made out. In spite of this, it is still hard to believe that snowflakes can be this beautiful.
