Wilson A. Bentley was the first man to capture a photo of a snowflake in 1885. Rather than me explaining it here is the article along with a shot video of
Wilson A. Bentley. Just amazing what he pulled in in 1885 to capture the first snow flake.

Fascinating. The vid shows loads of his shots. Incredible for him to accomplish that so long ago with a bellows camera!
