Caption: Waves in a water-filled wave tank. Two sets of concentric waves are produced as two objects oscillate in and out of the water in synchronisation. Where the peaks of the circular radiating patterns of waves meet, they interfere constructively. This image was made by shining light through the tank, the waves casting shadows beneath.
