Solar energy is energy that is present in sunlight. It has been used for thousands of years in many different ways by people all over the world. As well as its traditional human uses in heating, cooking, and drying, it is used today to make electricity where other power supplies are absent, such as in remote places and in space. It is becoming cheaper to make electricity from solar energy and in many situations it is now competitive with energy from coal or oil. Since ancient times, the sun has given earth life by emanating light and heat to empower life on earth. This image of the sun’s rays has been given a minimalist theme with very few other elements in the picture to isolate the sheer magnificence of the sun’s rays. Also included within the composition are pylons carrying electrical energy, also a form of energy generated by the sun’s own energy.
