From Sand Grains to Snowflake Microscopic Photography

Microscopic photography gives us insight into what we can't see with the naked eye. Photographers explore the world and photograph images that are magnified a few hundred times.

The photos electrify and enlarge some of the most interesting stuff. For example, if you were walking on the beach you wouldn't notice what is in the sand. Even if you picked up a seashell, the magnification of the images makes you see the coastal creations entirely different. Microscopic photography opens our eyes and exemplifies what we are looking at.

Think back to being in biology class and having to look under the microscope, but this time you are taking photographs of interesting findings that people have never seen before.
