I thought I would share an abstract photomicrograph I took last month. This is a microscopic view of Michigan maple syrup that was allowed to crystalize on a glass slide. The colors were due to cross-polarization. The horizontal field width of this image is 690 microns (0.69 mm., about 100X). 8 image stack.

All the technical mumbo-jumbo aside, I just thought it was pretty.

For those of you who want to know the details, this was taken with a Nikon Eclipse Ci microscope, Plan 10X/0.25 NA lens, and a Nikon D300s digital camera. 1/20 sec, ISO 200. The image stack was aligned and stacked using the Zerene Stacker program. Post-processing was done with PhotoShop CS5.
