  1. I especially like this one, with the contrast of textures…smooth, wet stone, and glowing water.

    • Thank you, Clare. It’s often hard to find a good composition with the biofilm. But the rocks and precipitated iron oxide and leaf helped out in this case. I have so many more photos of this stuff that I will never show on the blog, but I can’t resist taking them just because they’re there.

    Do you ever examine the film microscopically?

  3. I like the complimentary curves of the leaf and rock edge in this one. I think you can get another image from this, zooming in tighter, with the most colorful part of the bacteria, the leaf & part of the rock. At the same time, it’s nice to have context, which this view has, with the other bits of rock and mud.

  4. I checked this photograph for a possible tight crop, and unfortunately, it didn’t pass the test. The film is too broken up. So I guess all you get with this one is context. I didn’t notice the complementary curves; thanks for that observation!
