Snowflake, historical image

Snowflake. Light micrograph of a snowflake taken by Wilson Bentley (1865-1931). Bentley, a farmer from Vermont, USA, was the first person to successfully photograph snow flakes, taking the first photograph in 1885. He used a bellows camera attached to a light microscope. Snowflakes are symmetrical ice crystals that form in calm air with temperatures near the freezing point of water. The exact shape of a snowflake depends on local climatic conditions. Snowflakes typically have hexagonal symmetry. No two snowflakes are identical, as each experiences a wide range of conditions as it forms inside a cloud.

Welwitschia mirabilis Featured Print

Welwitschia mirabilis

Welwitschia mirabilis. This unique plant consists of a woody stem and two large leaves. It is evergreen and the leaves grow continuously along the ground, often becoming frayed. W. mirabilis is endemic to the Namib desert, the most arid environment on Earth. It survives this environment partly because of its roots, which can grow to depths of 30 metres. The oldest living plant is 1500 years old. The largest leaf found is 6 metres long and 2 metres wide. Photographed in the Namib desert

Snowflake, light micrograph

Snowflake. Light micrograph of a stellar plate snowflake. Snowflakes are symmetrical ice crystals that form inside clouds when water vapour condenses directly into ice. The exact shape of each snowflake depends on local climatic conditions within the precise area of the cloud where it is formed. As such, no two snowflakes are identical, with each individual pattern emerging as the crystal grows. Stellar plates are a common form of snowflake that form thin, plate-like crystals with six broad arms forming a star-like shape
