Optical Effects

Take a look at some of the amazing ways our atmosphere can play with light. We’ve all marvelled at the ethereal beauty of a rainbow, but how many of these other optical effects have you seen? Caught on camera here, we see haloes, coronas, mirages, glories, the spooky Brocken Spectre and more…

Beautiful Chemistry

Our gallery of chemical reactions as you’ve never seen them before. Pin-sharp macro detail, speeded up to reveal the dynamic processes at work. This level of detail allows the intricate nature of the reactions to be seen, as we follow metals growing like snowflakes, colourful precipitation, crystals forming from solution, acid attacks and the almost lifelike growth of crystal gardens.
