While at Brighton-Le-Sands in Australia's Botany Bay, photographer John Turnbull used the handy-dandy microscope of the Olympus TG4 to get this striking shot of sand and shells. While the light bathing the shells and bringing out their luminous hues is the first thing that beckons the eye, one can't help but to be lured into contemplating the beauty of that delicate and translucent sand. So pretty, each little piece a sculpture of its own ... BRB, having a Zen moment.
