Scientist Nathan Myhrvold is one of three people who has created a camera that can take pictures of snowflakes at a microscopic level. Myhrvold’s photos are the highest resolution. He camera is specially equipped to capture the images before the snowflake melts. He says that only “one out of every thousand snowflakes is perfect enough to photograph.” After choosing the best snowflake, he takes more than 100 photos before it melts. Then a computer software combines all the photos. The end result is a very sharp high-res image that shows the flake in incredible detail.
