Nanobama

The nanobama structures are made of carbon nanotubes, and the pictures were taken using optical and electron microscopes. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are tiny hollow cylinders of carbon; the diameter of a CNT is tens of thousands of times smaller than a human hair, and CNTs are several times stronger and stiffer than steel.

How they are made? Check it out: Nanobama

Birdphotos

I have been a birdwatcher for most of my life.

My motives are limited to birds, and the few larger animals I meet on my way. All birds fascinate me, but I love the owls and hawks in particular. I see birdphotography as a way of documenting the birds life, more than an art-form. Therefore I strive with my photos, to show the birds behaviour and in particular I pursue action-photos.


Bird Photography by Helge Sørensen from Denmark.
