Nanophotography

Excellent work in scientific photography for the Nikon Small World prize, including a sunset moth wing entry by Charles Krebs of Issaquah, WA, that I rather like. Also, the most cheerful and frivolous to my eye is the candycane fun of "Ferroelectric liquid crystal domains nucleating from isotropic liquid of P10PIMB (known as bent-core liquid crystal material)".

Apparently this year's touchstones are sapphire substrates, mouse cells and my old personal friend, Drosphila melanogaster (the fruit fly).

It's a beautiful world. Even if sometimes you have to use brightfield, darkfield, flourescence and high-powered scopes to see it.

Have you seen Seed magazine? There're pictures like that every issue. Full page and sometimes full spread, too.
