Focussing on the sand, Scheveningen - The Netherlands / Crystal ball

it´s been awhile since I last posted a Crystal ball shot on my stream and I had another challenge to complete. The challenge came from Remco ter Wal on my last Crystal ball photo Facing the wind.

The challenge was: Use the Crystal ball as a magnifying glass, The Dutch make chips.

I immediately thought of microchips, and what a microchips made of? Yes SILICON!!!!

Silicon is the eighth most common element in the universe by mass, but very rarely occurs as the pure free element in nature. It is more widely distributed in dusts, sands, planetoids and planets.

Silicon has many industrial uses. It is the principal component of most semiconductor devices, most importantly integrated circuits or microchips.


I think this is another challenge that I think I completed but that is for you to decide.

If anyone has any ideas for a challenge feel free to comment me and i´m more than willing to give it a go
