Take a pinch of salt.

Too wet today so I reversed a 28mm Takumar onto a 200mm Takumar and spilled a bit of salt to photograph. The light
is actually coming from the left and seems to be getting internally reflected on the far side of the crystal (?).
K1, ISO100, 2 seconds @ f22.

Nice, it looks like it's floating in outer space.

Lovely macro. Reminds me of an account on Instagram where the person photographs snowflakes and grains of sand.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

Very good.

Yes, internal reflection, after being refracted on entry and scattered from internal and surface defects. It clearly doesn't have Pentax HD coating.

I wonder what it would be like with coloured light, different colours from different directions?

Like an uncut diamond waiting to be made beautiful and expensive. That's about the size of a diamond I can afford
