Beyond Human Perception

Challenge #4 in the Technology Enabling Art series. Hosted by ProfHankD.
Challenge has finished
Most of the photos people take use the camera to capture what people see; the challenge is to capture things that a person normally would NOT be able to see. The subject might be unseen because it is imaged in NIR (near infrared), happens too quickly (use a fast shutter or flash) or too slowly (use a long exposure or time lapse stacking) for human perception, is seen from a place your camera can go but you can't, etc.

We have lots of snowflakes in Canada. This is one. Photographed with a film camera body attached to a microscope, and the flake back-lighted. Three or four hours outside in the cold for a couple of lucky shots and an awful lot of 'near-misses'. I love this hobby!
