The coral decorates the deep blue south sea with seaweed growing. This photograph making you image such splendid beautiful nature is a secondary electron image of the NaCl crystal observed with STEM. A part looking like seaweed is a micro grid. A NaCl crystal, which grew up from a super cooling state, is growing up to the shape of a smooth brunch of a tree. We admire the micro- modeling beauty of the natural world.

At 59th photo contest hosted by the Japanese Society of Microscopy in 2003.
