Hello. :)

My name is Dennis "S.K" I recently started collecting elements as a free time hobby.

I decided to open my Wikipedia userpage and upload pictures of my current collection. It will be updated as I get new samples.

You might already have seen some of my pictures spread arround Wikipedia.

Press on any picture to view the picture up to 4000 x 3000 pixel.
