Did Santa bring you a microscope for Christmas?

26 Dec 2011 10:25am

@CElliottUK: Nah, no microscope. :-) I shot this a couple of weeks ago with my bellows coupled to my dslr. Thanks Chris!

Isn't the molecular structure crystalline? This is a wonderful salty tasting image. Fun use of micro.

26 Dec 2011 4:16pm

@Twojays: Thanks Joyce - salt is indeed a crystalline structure that takes on the shape of a cube.

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

Great shot, Jason. I've found composition to be very tricky with bellows and high magnification and you have succeeded in creating a fine one.

26 Dec 2011 5:12pm

@Francisco Romero: Thanks Francisco - yes, patience is a virtue when working with high magnification. It took me about an hour to get three shots that I consider keepers.

Curly from South Shields, United Kingdom

Seriously good well lit shot Jason.
