Crystal Maze

By seharris77
This looks like the sort of thing you'd be scraping off your car windscreen in January but it's actually salt crystals! I mixed some kitchen salt with a bit of water and let a few drops dry out on some glass. When it was dry, I lit it using darkfield illumination technique and got loads of really weird images including this one.

What a brilliant idea! It really looks like frost. Good imagination.

I like the effect, well done. Could you please explain darkfield illumination?

It's okay, I found reference to the technique in the reader's forum.
