Since a long lost gaseous cloud from Woodstock settled on my house tonight, these pics are perfect!

They really are perfect. The detail is astounding.

Printed up big, they would certainly have fit in on the college dorm walls back in the 60's!

Charlie,

Very nice images !
The microcrystals are my favourite subject. I've never tried ascorbic acid yet. But your recent and many previous images show that ascorbic acid has great photographic potential. I must try it somewhen.

Charles,

Could I ask if the slide was prepared with dissolved or melted ascorbic acid?

Thanks

This was dissolved in water and spread on a 2x3 inch slide.... no cover slip, dried at room temperature.

I'm with Frez on this one. ;)

I'm not paranoid. Which of my enemies told you that?
