Is there anything better than a golden beach? The sand is very smooth and fine, and the ocean is amazing, the view is simply breathtaking. Well Dr. Gary Greenberg gave us the opportunity to see the smallest bits of sand under a microscope.
Well, not really. But Dr. Greenberg’s microscopic photos are magnified by 300 times, and it is wonderful how those sand bits look, each one is different from all and they are all beautiful in their own way.
He invented the HD 3D microscopes and he is using them to take these amazing pictures. There are about 18 U.S. patents under his name. Greenberg used to be a filmmaker and photographer until he was 33. Then he moved from Los Angeles to LOndon, and he got a Ph.D. in biomedical research. That is how he became interested in optical technologies.
This sand composition depends on the location. Dr. Greenberg is now located in Hawaii, and the sand in that area are now his primary focus. The sand bits in the pictures contain remnants from tropical sea organisms. Other organic matter, minerals and rocks.
These photographs are simply magnificent, and we cannot wait to see more. Dr. Greenberg gave us a closer look into the golden sand that we see on the beach. You probably would never guess that the sand grains would look this beautiful.
