When seen well beyond the limits of human eyesight, the miniature particles are exposed as fragments of crystals, spiral fragments of shells and crumbs of volcanic rock. Professor Gary Greenberg, PhD in biomedical research from University College London, said, “It is incredible to think when you are walking on the beach you are standing on these tiny treasures… Every time I look through my microscope I am fascinated by the complexity and individuality created by a combination of nature and the repeated tumbling of the surf on a beach.”
Greenberg’s pictures are available on his website sandgrains.com and his book A Grain of Sand is available on Amazon.
today is a good day to watch sand pile up 😉
