This X-ray or radiographic image reveals the internal structure of an Electra water lily, Nymphaea ‘Electra.’ This image was created from approximately 70 individual radiographs exposed onto mammography film from an exposure of low energy X-rays, also called Grenz rays, using a .5 mm source size. The numerous individual images were then stitched together using Adobe PhotoShop CS® software. Colorizing was done after stitching. .
