3 diatoms

Post by Charles Krebs »

Been trying some diatom mounting again. Still not too good at it, but there are generally a few nice shots that can be found in each "strew" mount.

Ohh what a symmetry and beauty! Diatoms are like a snow flakes in the water. :D
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

P.S.
Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

Whoaa, Charlie, amazing shots ! Especially the second one is absolutely
beautiful. Stacking in DIC works nice !? How many single shots did you use
for this one ?
Kind regards,
Gerd

Well I guess I will have to go along with the crowd, I like number two the best also. However, I cannot help but to wonder about the purpose of the design of these things. :-k

Yes indeed, stacking is a fun tool with diatoms. There were 20 images combined for the second picture. (9 for the first picture, and 5 for the third).
