     For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with the intricate and delicate beauty of the snowflake! Over the years I have collected photos and books and read more about this crystalline miracle than I care to admit and along the way I discovered Wilson A. "Snowflake" Bentley.

          "Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated., When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind."  
          Wilson "Snowflake" Bentley 1925

I am sure you have heard the phrase 'no two snowflakes are alike' but did you know that Wilson Bentley made this discovery in the small rural town of Jericho, Vermont in 1885 when he became the first person to photograph a snow crystal (aka snowflake). Over his lifetime he photographed over 5000 of them earning the nickname "Snowflake Bentley."

For more information on Wilson Bentley, visit the official "Snowflake Bentley" website at http://snowflakebentley.com/.

In the spirit of celebrating, I'm hosting a contest of my own.  For a chance to win a PDF copy of my e-books Skin Deep, an erotic contemporary novella , Whisper Sweet Nothings, an erotic Weekend Getaway, as well as a $25.00 Gift Certificate to Secret Cravings Publishing, simply leave a comment below sharing your favorite activity in the snow.
