Light from a Gherkin

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Other, Photo Competition

Theme: Energy Award: Highly Commended Photographer: Adam Shortall I took this photo purely to show off how the sunlight had reflected off of the Gherkin, London. The image is in no way edited other than a few contrasts and brightness tweaks. When I was at the scene I consciously took the photo in black and […]

The Unique Purple of Chemistry

Theme: Energy Award: Highly Commended Photographer: Gwen Lam Oxidation of finely dispersed aluminium with iodine can be initiated using drops of water. The reaction is strongly exothermis, producing a lot of heat energy. The excess iodine vaporises, forming a deep violet vapour. The reaction is : 2Al(s) +3I2(s) –> Al2I6(s) Anhydrous aluminium halides, such as […]

Making Fire!

Theme: Energy Award: N/A Photographer: Verity Kelly This picture shows my cousin (Tom) and his friend (Johnny) using friction to create energy to create some embers which they can then use to light the bonfire. I chose to take this picture as I thought it was interesting to look at the old method of creating […]

Neon Beams

Theme: Energy Award: Winner Photographer: Emma Dyson My inspiration for this photo was electric energy. I wanted to find a way to photograph this energy since it is hard to view. I remembered when I was little in science lessons there would be a plasma ball. I was always interested in the vibrant currents of […]

Dancing Light

Theme: Energy Award: Highly Commended Photographer: Emilie de Bree This is a picture of a spinning disco ball taken in a dark room, which is really emphasising the movement of light. It shows a mixture of light energy, kinetic energy, electrical energy, and also a bit of sound and heat energy, though those aren’t as […]

Reversed Energy

Theme: Energy Award: N/A Photographer: George Finch The stag beetle is eating the leaves to gain the loss of energy flying and walking to the food but the stag beetle mainly gets its energy from when it was in its larvae form. Stag beetles also eat the sap that comes from trees and can be […]

Flower and Power

Theme: Energy Award: Highly Commended Photographer: Lauren Farrow This photo shows how energy is used everywhere. The pilon transports engery and this is a man made form, whereas the plants in the oil see rape field, use energy from the sun. I believe that this photo captures a range of aspects of energy; the pilon […]

Theme: Energy Award: N/A Photographer: Edward Vinson This was taken while driving back from Switzerland. It is a picture of some windswept trees lit up by a lightning flash in the middle of a storm taken from a moving vehicle. It was in the middle of a storm and the clouds and the time of […]

Sun Halo

Theme: Energy Award: Highly Commended Photographer: Kiran Thapa Whilst on vacation abroad, I was able to capture this ephemeral moment. What is pictured, is known as a sun halo, which is an optical phenomenon. It forms as sunlight is refracted through cirrostratus clouds, which are mainly composed of small ice crystals. It is the small […]

Confetti Explosion

Theme: Energy Award: N/A Photographer: Jack Campbell This is a photograph of a confetti gun being fired. I was inspired to capture the exact moment when the chemical energy in the confetti cartridge was converted into kinetic energy, as well as light energy. The image was captured using my Digital SLR camera. To freeze the […]
