A few microscapes.  Are they too 1-D?

Not too 1D, which would be 1 pixel wide by 15 x 10e6 long  ;D
Yes, this is definitely 2D, we are in Flatland, not Lineland (tip of hat to Edward Abbott).
I like it. I like patterns. Heck, I spend most of my time looking at 2D microscope slides.

I like it too, the subtle colours, the vertigo induced by confusion with LANDSAT shots.

Superb images… My imagination could easily be fooled and thinks that it's sat images from arid regions or planet.

Scott and Francois - Yes -  shots like this do make one a believer in the fractal geometry of natural phenomena.

Nancy - I was indeed being a bit sloppy with my language, but I thought that 'too two-D' didn't really communicate my question about flatness.  After all photographers go to great pains to convince everyone that we indeed don't live in flatland.  Anyway, if the language that I commonly hear in the media is to be taken into account, I should have said 'too too two-D'. 
I hope you have a binocular microscope!

The photos aren't loading at the moment.

Nancy, I haven't seen Flatland mentioned since I used to read Martin Gardner more than 30 years ago! Thanks for reminding me.
