Great macro, Jason. Excellent work arranging the grains. Your salt grains are remarkably regular in their shape, at least compared to what I have available.

@Francisco Romero: Thanks Francisco - I was also surprised at how very few irreglar pieces there were.

@grouser: I suppose refined table salt is rock, right? Cubist indeed. :-))

Nice DoF chosen for this composition! I see a great series developing here!

@Steven: I'd like to have some more to post with these, but there's just one more that will be shown tomorrow. It takes a lot of time and patience to get even one good shot at this level of magnification. I'll revisit this subject again sometime in the future and add on to this short series.

Roland Theys from Gerpinnes, Belgium

I thought maybe at first that they looked like nice little ice cubes. A very
beautiful macro, the composition is enhanced by the blurred cubes.

@Phil David Morris 2011: Thank you very much, Phil. :-)
