A decade's worth of photography from northern Ontario, Vermont, Alaska, Michigan, northern Sweden, and Japan, including more beautiful crystals, advanced photographic techniques, high-resolution images, numerous examples of crystal types, and a wide variety of illumination methods make for a visually stunning work of frozen art. Authors Kenneth N. Libbrecht and Rachel Wing provide fascinating material on snowflake photography, winter clouds and snowflakes, ice halos, skiing, snowballs, artificial snow, avalanches, and frost formations. No one who has ever caught snowflakes on their tongue or simply marveled at a winter wonderland will want to miss it!"-- Provided by publisher.
