grains of sand


I’m playing around with crops again, this time to show the coolness of the grains of sand from one of yesterday’s photos. (More of my zooming in can be found here and here.) Next I need to get photos of sand with a real macro lens set-up. Or a microscope!

  1. They look more like the rocks they are!

  2. I love it. Is it different crops of just one image or multiple images of the same patch of sand?

    • Annette, these are different crops. I was using my telephoto, and really only got one photo of the sand. (Well, I was taking a picture of the shell.) I hadn’t realized how clearly the sand came out until looking at the picture later on my laptop. Otherwise I probably would have gone a little crazy and taken my usual dozen photos of the same subject!

  3. Wow. Gorgeous sand, gorgeously photographed!

  4. Alejna May I have your permission to reproduce the first sand picture on this blog for an educational book, ANTARCTIC ADVENTURES–Life Lessons from Polar Explorers, for middle and high school students? This is a self-published personal growth and development book and your marvelous pictures helps illustrate one of William Blake’s “Songs of Innocence:” “To see a world in a grain of sand. . .”

    We’re nearing publication as I write. Will obviously credit your wonderful blog.

    Many thanks and very best wishes.
