To the naked eye, all sand looks pretty much the same. But magnified by a hundred-fold or more, each individual grain exhibits a distinct beauty. Dr. Gary Greenberg photographs what he calls these “dramatic landscapes of hidden worlds” using a high-powered light microscope to give each grain its due.

“The reason I focus on sand is to show people how ordinary things are truly extraordinary when you look from a new point of view,” Greenberg said.

How fascinating!
