Incredible X-Ray Images Of Seashells And Fossils Captured By Photographer Bert Myers (PHOTOS)

A retired doctor with a love for photography has developed his own unique artform.

Using an X-ray machine, Bert Myers captures the breathtaking stillness of nature. The series includes shots of everything from a sea urchin to seashells and fossils of aquatic life.

An academic physician working in research, the beauty of a precision X-ray first struck Myers when he was taking images of blood vessels growing into healing wounds, according to his website.

Myers later studied under photographer and conservationist Ansel Adams and went on to create color as well as black and white X-ray images.

If you find yourself taken by Meyers photography, Nick Veasey's nature X-rays and Dutch artist Albert Koetsier's 'Jewels Of Nature' will also certainly catch your eye.

Check out a selection of Bert Myers X-ray images of seashells and fossils below.
