Don Komarechka. "Sky Crystals: Unraveling the Mysteries of Snowflakes" - snowflake photography book

This book written by my friend from Canada, professional photographer Don Komarechka (Website, Google+, Facebook, Flickr). This excellent 9x9" size hardcover book (containing 304 pages), along with fantastic snowflake photography, will detail the science, photography techniques and even delve into why we find snowflakes beautiful.

Portrait of Don Komarechka, Canadian professional photographer"The book contains all of my snowflake images, and will detail every photographic and editing technique used in their creation – and I encourage you to try it for yourself! The book also contains all of the science and physics of snowflakes that I can share without personally having a degree in molecular dynamics. I’ll keep the explanations easy to understand and graphic, but the science is fascinating and there are still many unanswered questions." -- Don Komarechka.

Don's snowflake photography truly amazing, much better than my own efforts. He kindly spent a whole page describing my snowflake photography approach.
