Salt and Pepper

This image of a grain of salt and a peppercorn was taken by David McCarthy using a Scanning Electron Microscope. Originally black and white, the coloring was added by Annie Cavanagh to highlight the details and contrast the objects. A simple concept masterfully done, this picture won the overall award at the Visions of Science Photographic Awards for 2005.
