Rock balancing

Rock balancing is a skilled art that involves balancing oddly shaped rocks on top of each other. While walking on the beach one day, I discovered a plethora of rocks being balanced and knew I had to capture it.

At the right angle, these rocks can look rather large but were no bigger than my hand.

As easy as it looks, rock balancing is very delicate and time consuming but the end result is beautiful.

Right after these photos were taken, the tide started to rise possibly taking out some of this beautiful rock art, but I’m glad I captured it.

Microscopy


Microscopy is using microscopes to view samples or object that are otherwise unseen by the human eye. This is my favorite type of scientific photography. I could spend all day in a lab creating different microscopic slides and photographing the unseen microscopic world. I use the technique of polarizing light to increases contrast and bring out the color variations in each specimen. The most common way to increase contrast is to stain the different structures with selective dyes this can create artificial colors. I hope you enjoy this collection of colorful abstract microscopy photography.
