Shooting Crystal

After a brief search I found a set of extension tubes that I once used frequently. I took one photo of a crystal and the addition of a flash provided the light I was hoping for. You didn’t actually think this title had anything to do with drugs, did you?

  1. Great color, that patch of blue is amazing.
    I rotated the picture counterclockwise and it looks like a fantastic sci-fi mountain range with a glacier at its feet. No alien pharmacologicals were misused in the process.
    Speaking of shooting crystal, I found some big chunks of quartz crystal once and made nice arrowheads out of them.


  2. The title didn’t make me think of drugs … but the photo did 🙂
    I don’t know what an extension tube is … but the end result of this image is gorgeous color


    • That’s funny as hell Laurie!
      Extension tubes come in a 3 set and are used to allow you way close to a subject. I used to use them professionally when I had a B&W custom lab and was copying zillions of old photos. I did that for 14 years.
      Thank you.
