Microscopics January Wallpaper

An appropriately snowy scene for this free to download January wallpaper, taken at Microscopics HQ during the recent absolute-zero freeze.

Click to enlarge, then right-click/control-click to download. We’ve included two different ratios, which should fit most monitors. As is usual for WordPress blogs, all rescaled  images are cruelly rendered myopic, but focus will be restored when enlarged/clicked.
