The Snowflake Man- Snowflake Bentley
Wilson Bentley (1865-1931) was born and raised in the snow belt near Lake Champlain in Vermont . This man was the very first person to photograph the image of a snowflake. This short documentary video tells his story. A tale of how a childhood fascination became a lifetime obsession .
"...To photograph the most magnificent of all snowflakes..."
With all the technology available now, we can enjoy the beauty of a single snow crystal so easily compared to what Bentley had to go through . It had never been done before .
