Sand Between Your Toes
April 18, 2013
Have you ever thought about the grains of sand you walk on when you stroll along the beach? If you take a look at the book, A Grain of Sand: Nature’s Secret Wonder by Dr. Gary Greenberg, you will find beautiful pictures of sand grains. With the use of a 3-D microscope, Dr. Greenberg shows us the beauty of the mineral grains, coral fragments, and delicate shells that make up sand. Using microscopes and 3-D imagery, Dr. Greenberg has photographed sand from beaches around the world. Just like snowflakes, no two grains of sand are the same.
Dr. Greenberg feels that "science and art are not mutually exclusive, and that they fit beautifully well together." After seeing the fascinating pictures in this book, I tend to agree.
