Love seeing these shots.

Steve: Love this shot - reminds me of the days exploring the area near an old iron mine and smelting operation in CT when I was a kid. Would dig for hours before finding a crystal of pyrite - which was just as good as gold to an 8 year old - no fooling!! BTW - do you like your Tokina Macro lens? - I'm a big fan of the 12 ATX 12-24mm f/4 - Russ

Looks like it should be in a museum or a book of minerals and rocks. Perfect shot. Smile

Little pieces of art. How do you come across these do you go down into the mines yourself? D. Smile

Good exposure control Steve. Even though they do not move, it cannot be easy getting the exposure right with such sparkly objects. john
