Quartz crystals in small geode

My wife is a keen rock hound - she found this small geode with quartz crystals inside on a roadside gravel pile outside Camberville in the Yarra Ranges in Victoria.

Thanks Jorgen,
I like your pollen shots on your website. What technique did you use for the "Hippeastrum flower pollen" photo?

Thankyou Leonard,
I enjoy getting back to the fundamentals with black and white film to sharpen my photographic skills. I find it complements my digital photography.
All the best,

The following images are of the Nudibranch Verconia verconis under Portsea Pier in Victoria, Australia. It can come in a variety of colour forms depending on its food source. Here it is living on the sponge Dendrilla rosea . Note that there is one image where six nudibranchs surround what I believe ...
