Ok, just look at this:

Coral sand magnified 100xPhoto Credit: David Maitland

This is not some digital designed contemporary art. To our wonder, it is a photograph of coral sand, magnified 100 times. Taken by David Maitland using brightfield technique, no filters or other devices have altered the color or properties of light in any way.

So many cool, colorful structures!

This was one of this years’ winners of Nikon’s Small World competition. Check out the other 19 magnified and magnificent 2012 winners here.

"What is knowledge anyway? It is not a physical thing; but neither is it a metaphysical ideal, like a perfect circle that can never be drawn, a mathematical constant with an infinite decimal tail, or a goddess of sublime beauty who never ages. Knowledge, eventually, relates to nothing but itself, and leads nowhere but back to itself." - Reverend Nemu
