    Author Information
    Mark Cassino is a fine art and natural history photographer. He first started photographing snow crystals after watching them land on the windshield of his car. He has since spent many cold hours in his garage, photographing snow. Aside from snow crystals, Mark also enjoys photographing dragonflies, wildflowers, and trees. He lives in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with his wife, Pam, and their two cats. Jon Nelson is a teacher and physicist who has studied ice crystals and clouds for more than fifteen years. His favorite activities include rock climbing, watching thunderstorms, and exploring crystal formations on frosty mornings. Though crystals shaped by weather are best, he can never forget the heart-shaped ice crystal he once grew in the laboratory. Jon lives near Kyoto, Japan, with his wife and two daughters.
