Sand Photography

“Photographing sand under the microscope is a hobby I started in late 1999 with samples I collected or received from friends. As a veterinary toxicologic pathologist I have access and working knowledge of microscopy equipment and that, together with experience in photomicroscopy, has provided an opportunity to learn about geology and marine biology in examining different sand samples. My interest as a novice in sand has remained keen and I have basically emulated existing and well established professional and active sand related websites to help share the variability and beauty of microscopic features of sand. Creating is also my way of thanking those who have provided sand samples by featuring their contributions.”
