Flash Fire

Theme: Energy Award: N/A Photographer: Charlotte Kanzler This is an example of the use of lycopodium powder, which when dispersed into the air over a Bunsen burner will produce a magnificent flash of fire. Despite lycopodium’s obvious flammability, it is slow to catch flame when sitting in a pile. The disparity is created because blowing […]

Fierce Power of a Rutting Stag

Energy: Natural and Artificial

Theme: Energy Award: N/A Photographer: Charu Maheshwari I think this photograph speaks about itself. The different forms of energy have been depicted in this photograph. The natural forms of energy like the sun can be seen here. Also the wind energy can be felt because of the clouds. Also the electric pole can be seen […]

Peace and Rush

Theme: Energy Award: N/A Photographer: Victoria Leigh Energy is the core of existence, its part of our lives and always will be. Energy brings life and vibrance and I feel as if as we’ve developed so has energy, we’ve pushed energy further and we’re still stretching it until one day may be we’ll reach its […]

Minimizing Drag

Theme: Science Behind The Olympics Award: Runner-up Photographer: Jackson Algiers I have been swimming since I was five. Swimming is my favorite sport. When my Physics teacher told us we had to enter one, extra-curricular, science activity, I looked online for photo contests and science fairs that were related to swimming. I found the YS […]

Running For Science

Theme: Science Behind The Olympics Award: N/A Photographer: Kermit Frazier In the “track” events competitors run a specified distance and the shortest time that distance is covered by a competitor determines the winner.  At first glance this is simply time being a function of distance and competitors speed.  Upon closer examination, what factors affect speed?  […]

Mystical Rings

Theme: Science behind the Olympics Award: Winner Photographer: Abegael Tomlin The inspiration behind this picture was trying to capture the visual essence of energy as well as linking into the 2012 Olympic Games.  I used a slow shutter speed on tripod which enabled me to photograph the light over a certain amount of time and […]

The Torch

Theme: Science behind the Olympics Award: Highly Commended Photographer: Ryan McDougald This photograph, that I’ve titled “the torch”, is an impressionistic representation of the Olympic torch. The flame that extends from the Olympic torch is continually lit from before the games begin to the last day of the events. This photograph is meant to slow […]

I took this photo as i was fascinated with the way the light reflected back off the windows in this fragmented way, showing of the way the building […]

Fireballs

Theme: The Result of Science Award: Winner Photographer: Gilda Rastegar This photo demonstrates the physics of how cameras capture light. Like humans who can only see a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, cameras can only capture visible light. The quantum theory states that light is emitted from small bundles of particles called photons. In this […]
