Geddes Prize 2009:

Entry by Jura Aponaviciute

These pictures were taken with a PENTAX K200D.

Picture 1: This is a photograph of a tungsten (aka "wolfram") lightbulb from which the glass has been removed and then switched on. As the tungsten filament is no longer under vacuum it burns briefly but spectacularly. The photo was taken using "infinite" exposure under control of a remote trigger.

Picture 2: Showing the cohesion of a liquid falling under the effect of gravity. Taken with ISO800 and a very short exposure, plus flash.


Pictures 3 and 4: Sunset and sunrise in Lithuania.
